Dedication To Nik

The darkness surrounds me;
Black. It is all I can see.
The pain wraps it slender arms around me,
drowning me, burning me, till I can no longer flee.
Fear comes upon me,
In waves, like the sea,
It is all I can speak,
Making everything seem bleak.

But then you are there,
so lovely and kind and fair.
You take me from the darkness;
The pain;
The fear.
Everything is bright and warm,
All becomes clear.
You are my sun, my comfort, in days.
