Fear stands in my doorway
It chokes me with cold hands
It overwhelms my body
And swallows my soul

I struggle and fall
Curled into a ball
Shiver and shake
No more can I take

If only I could lift my head
But I feel so heavy
Almost like lead
Heart hammering in my chest

Sudden heat
Like a shining sun
Steps into my life
The Fear is gone

I look up into
Bright brown eyes
And smile
As he offers his little hand

My fingers grip his small hand
I no longer feel my fear
As long as that dear child is near
Alone takes his leave

Till the next time
I am lonesome
And Alone rears
His ugly head
