Open the Door – poem



Open the door
Let in the light,
Sing me a song,
Hold me tight.

Whisper softly in my ear,
Read my a tale or two,
Drive away my fear,
As you hold me close to you.

I fear the day more than the night
I fear the world when it says
I'm wrong and it's right.

Hold me close,
Don’t let go.
The world is changing,
Don't let me go.

Confusion, anger, lying and defeat
Slowly eat my shell, my sanity,
I cannot stand these cheats;
I fear an upcoming calamity.

Open the door
Let in the light,
Sing me a song,
Hold me tight.

Raise me high above the ground
Away from the world, away from it all.
Hold me close, so I don't hear a sound
Hold me tight and don't let me fall.

Wrap me in your light,
Teach me what is right.
Tell me what I need to do,
To be a better person, a better you.

Awaken my soul, my heart,
My body and mind;
Awaken my senses, give them a start,
Teach me how to be human again.

Open the door
Let in the light,
Sing me a song,
And hold me tight.
