I nestle in the room of your heart I will rise again and again You are my protector My swollen eyes create many tears My mind forms many fears You coax them out of my soul and burn them to dust You have wise eyes open for me A smile that grasps my heart Beauty that flowers and blossoms In your garden I take in all you have shown me
