I need you.

More than the birds need air for flight,
Fish water to breathe,
The Earth the sun to heat,
Us our eyes to see,

More than a mother her child,
A child her mother,
A brother another,
Another his brother,

More than a candle its wax,
The flames so high,
The wane so strong,
So dangerous -

I'm afraid of it all,
And now, more than ever,
Beyond words' expression,
I need you.
