Only One - Poem by Louise McVicar

So many things prey on my heart
and drag my soul down
What is love? What of my heart?
and how short is this life?
This body I live in, it's getting tired
this heart I use it hurts
My mind needs rest, spirit's screaming for you
Oh how I wanna break down and cry

But you're the only one that can make me whole
Can heal my wounds, can save my soul
I need you so, but this I know
You're hear by my side and you'll never ever go

I close my eyes and know you're near
I open my heart and I shed my tears
But through the hurt and pain, I see your face
Hold me in your arms and never let me go.

Death comes too soon
Like a creeping shadow
And tries to consume me
But I'll stand strong, and I'll stand long
And hold onto my faith.
