Safe Place

When I’m racked by worried thought
Or feeling slightly down
And my mind is tired and fraught
With thoughts t’would have me drown

Your presence is my guarantee
Loving, thoughtful, sincere
You wrap your arms around me
Whisper softly in my ear:

Let me soak up all your sadness
Sorrow and regret
Let me fill your heart with gladness
Take away your fret

Let me love you through the night
Set your mind and body free
Release the pain that was your plight
Give you peace, hope and glee
