Angel In The Dark

The rain begins to fall
and all around me I feel the walls
start to close in on me.
It's the start
    of another lonely night
    without you.

Please don't stay away too long.
The emptiness is unbearable.
You never knew
how your warm embrace delivered me
    from the hungry vulture's glare.
You saved me in time
to salvage what little life
I had left in me.
With the kindness
and patience of an angel
you've brought me back.
How can I ever repay you?
