Wait out the Storm

It all hits me like a hurricane as I fight for every breath
The waters swirl around & the only calm is you at the center
Still I hold back, allow myself to be battered by the wind and waves for fear I’m unwelcome to join you in the Eye
Irrational fear may it be, somewhere in my soul it still rings true
I try to tell myself to be cautious yet take risks, be open to possibilities yet remain guarded
It’s a paradox I live everyday and it suffocates me
The struggle for balance may kill me yet
And there it is, your hand in my peripheral
Yet I’m afraid to turn, scared it’s just an illusion
Because the flicker of hope is what keeps me going
The harshness of reality proves often too hard to bear
I try to force myself to be a grownup and face the music but
The child in me yearns for the comfort of my teddy bear
To sit with you under the stars waiting for the storm to pass
I miss you as son as you leave and crave you when you’re gone
It’s your presence that makes the storm more bearable
Without you, the waves get larger and scarier and I lose myself in it
Come back and stay, take my hand and tell me we’ll get through this together
Let us wait out the storm as one
