Saving Me

In a moments notice
I found myself surrounded in darkness
dazed and confused, there I lie
wondering when joy had left me with sorrow
and when I didn’t think there could any worse,
I lost sight of even myself.
Just a body and a mind, separated.
All felt lost.

as suddenly as I slipped into this dark despair
I saw your face.
When my own leg became a stranger
you became familiar
your grace ignited a fire
which lit up the room with a light
so blinding I needed to adjust
and when the darkness fought back,
your light retaliated ten-fold.

but you never knew,
and you still don’t.
That you’ve saved me in my darkest days
and made me commit to fight the darkness,
should it ever think of returning.
