I was drowning in darkness.
Unable to move
Unable to breathe
So deep that nothing could penetrate.
And then, alone in the dark
I felt a hand slip into mine
And felt another heart beating in the dakness.
And a whisper in the dark;
A voice my soul recognized.
And for the first time in forever
I stopped struggling and let go
Trusting your arms to guide me;
To bring me to the surface once again
To the light and peace and hope
I thought I had lost forever.
No longer drowning in darkness
But swimming in sunlight
And now your heart a part of mine
