It used to be so easy, talking freely, laughing easily.
But in that one desperate month,
Loss has greater impact than I ever imagined.
I felt drowned in shock, and disbelief.
That something I had relied on was no longer there.
Struggling to recover, I felt I'd never catch up.
That I had missed an essential part of everything while I mourned.
I looked for one thing, one area of my life,
That i was still on top of, that I could cling to.
But there was nothing.
In this state, you found me.
You brought me back.
You helped me in more ways than you'll ever know.
You healed me.
I regained my balance, got a grip on my life once more.
And through it all, you stayed.
You'll never know what you did for me.
I wish I could thank you, but I don't know how.
My greatest fear now, is if you ever leave,
Who will save me then?
