Stay Above The Torrent

Stay Above The Torrent

Just one thing, one simple thing,

Is all I'm asking for now.

The storm of fates is washing upon me,

The tide is now crashing in,

The endless emotional whirlpool,

Sucking me in, pulling me down.

I'm really scared now,

I don't want to drown

I just need your support,

Before I go down.

I'm struggling to swim, really I am,

Beating back the feelings,

Trying not to let them win,

Paddling through the torrent of my tears.

Just give me your hand,

Pull me out,

Comfort me in the blanket of your arms,

Rub your gentle fingers through my hair.

That's all I need.
