Wilderness

Have you ever embraced your wild child? The spirit inside you that wants more than a tepid, humdrum life? She leads you down dark hallways and unfamilar groumd, daring you to take those steps beyond what is safe and known. Love can be that way too. The wilderness of human relationships can be the most frightening and rewarding of all. So for your enjoyment I present

Step Towards The Wild Side

I am afraid
But in my darkest night
I know I can reach out
To find the light
Of your love

I am unsure
But in spite of all my doubt
I know that you will be there
To support and help me out
Always

I have been blind
Looking all around but not seeing.
Your love opened my eyes
To the beauty in just being
Alive

I was deaf,
I listened without understanding
You opened my ears to the music
Of laughter and whispered words
Of love.
