You'Re Never Alone
Cowering in the corner, shivering with fear,
by Louise Sempey
As the shadows formed and began to grow near.
Out of the darkness shone a great light.
High in the sky enrapturing the night.
The light had shone to guide me home.
From where I'd been lost.
The place where I'd roamed.
A place I thought would capture my soul,
Make my life more complete, take on a new role.
But I soon found that this could never be so,
Without the solitude of my humble abode,
Among family I love, the people who care,
And the warmth in my heart...
Knowing they'll always be there.
