If All The World Should Fall Apart (For Chris.) - Poem by Danielle Ward
You are a rock in a storm-ravaged sea,
An island of dependency when all other friends have fallen
Like coins into a chasm.
You are a pleasant dream, a soothing place I can turn to,
When all other places are the harshest nightmares
You are a candle lit by hopeful hands
A small but belligerent light that tells me that darkness comes
Before the dawn.
You are a smile shared in secret,
A promise that you can stand my flaws, if I can yours,
Just to be there.
You are a familiar face in a crowd of strangers,
A knowledge that when I am alone, you are not too far away
Around the corner.
You are a friend, a part of me.
And if all the world should fall apart,
And the taut threads that hold our lives together
Like lightening strikes,
I would not care.
For I have known you,
And that is all the world to me.
