You would not have walked with me
Had the nights been not so scary
And your nightmares
All so real for you.
I would not have held your hands
Had the hands that I wished to hold
Not left me out in the cold.
Let us together, you and I
Celebrate our togetherness
Even as in our silences
We cherish our separateness.
