With fear in my eyes and light on my steps

With fear in my eyes and light on my steps
I pass through not a sound can be heard
Except the beating of my heart and the quick intakes of my breath
Silent as I pass
I glance to the left then right
If your hidden near by
Show your face to me
Let me know I'm safe
Protect me but love me
Hide awhile longer if you must
But show me in the end
That you were there
That you cared
I'll be fine
Since I feel your nearby
But don't let me down
Don't break my heart
