Never Alone

I was never alone

When I suffered

You

Always on my mind

Yet still suffered

Love is only enough in fairy tales, I thought

You took me on your arms

When I suffered 

Listened to my fears

Yet still suffered 

Bad karma maybe, I thought 

In my mixed up mind

You guided me

Then it came to me 

In a feverish dream nonetheless 

Your kindness was my food

Your soul my drink

Your love my cure 

I never knew love 

Till I felt it 

I would have never known

Without suffering
