And within her, she found that little girl
She embraced her with the delicateness of a flower’s petals touching the wind
She felt her presence in moments of joy
And saw her invisible darkness in moments of negativity
She battled with fear and so did I
We challenged it together from different perspectives
Through the innocence of a child as though hiding from a monster in the dark under covers
And me, trying to remain objective as I consider only what could be controlled whilst carrying a subjective ego
Trying to remember fear is projected onto the present from experiences of the past
Although we both walked with fear, we held each other’s hand
And as long as we did, we both knew we’d be okay
She was everything,
the love I sought,
the peace I longed for.
She was me.
