I Want to Feel Safe

I want to feel safe

But the arms that wrapped around me

Through those goodbye-filled nights

No longer exist

I want to feel safe

But the voice that used to comfort me

With its sweet tone and wisdom

Has been silenced

I want to feel safe

But the hands that held mine

When no others could

Are nowhere to be found

I want to feel safe

But the face that gave me hope

In those times when I needed it most

Is slowly deteriorating from my memory

I want to feel safe

But I'm constantly afraid

Of losing more than I already have

And forgetting what's still there

I want to feel safe

But right now

It seems near impossible

To feel safe
