ANGEL

Didn’t know just how to tell you
That I’d walked a darker way
Was afraid that I would hurt you
With the words that I would say

Still you were most insistent
That I tell you of that fight
For you were more than willing
To stand by me thru the night

Like fists, my words they hurt you
Like an angel you held on
Though in the dark I trembled
It was you who were so strong

I cried out every nightmare
And you did not back away
And when I held you in my arms
You kept that world at bay

I was down there on my knees
Just asking help from up above
When you found me there, in disrepair
And filled me with your love
