I need to know you're here



Daylight is dim.
I'm longing to sleep in,
needing some comfort and care.
But there's to much to do and
the worlds coming unglued -
I need to keep it together.

I need to know you're here.
Seeing the things I'm facing.
I need to know you're here.
Walking with me in my pacing.

In dishes piled high and
laundry way too deep
and papers impatiently waiting.
Do I only see work and tasks to do or
evidence of life and living?

I need to know you're here.
Helping me in these days.
I need to know you're here.
I'm trying to go your way.

Hold it together, keep yourself calm.
Cool as a cucumber wins. (I think)
Wanting so much to fall all apart,
so you can put me together again - again -
I'll just fall apart
so you can put me back together again.

I need to know you're here.
That I'm not in this all alone.
I need to know you're standing close.
Breathing each breath, taking me home.
I need to know you're here.
