I will stand beside you

by Michael A Aldieri
(Plantsvill CT)

You believe the sting won’t hurt you
As you lie awake alone at night
And fill yourself with a promise the pain endures
Yet every morning always finds you
Hiding from the light
With an emptiness the needle never cures

But I will stand beside you thru it all
And kneel down beside you when you fall
You will always have a hand reach out for you
To pull you back
From the other side of you

The truth hides every evening
From the shadows in the night
The price you pay for living one more dream
The silhouettes are deceiving
As they remain just out of sight
Each waiting for a turn to make you scream

A stranger’s arms may hold you
Without comfort the embrace
Only takes advantage
Of the demons you can’t face
But I will always love you
Till your scars no longer heal
And when you die at least just one
Will know just how you feel

So let me stand beside you thru it all
And kneel down beside you when you fall
You will always have a hand reach out for you
To pull you back
From the other side of you
