Angel At Your Back - Poem by Shane Clift

For Cena Rose (had you in mind when this came to me)

Reaching out to touch someone.
A heart I must mend to heal my own.
Distracting drama to ignore my torment.
I need to be needed.
Without it I feel alone.
I jump to aide of those around.
To help face the fear of the unknown.
Pull me here, push me there.
Answers I'll find for the questions you have.
I can handle it bring it on.
Whatever it takes to help your life go on.
Strength I front but torn I am.
Notice me you don't until I am gone.
Without me you are lost.
If I explode I will still be the angel who has your back.
