"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music." - Nietzche

I see you, my dear.
I see you hiding in the dark.
What’s happened, love?
What’s gone so wrong?
Don’t cry, darling.
Don’t cry tears of sadness.
Wipe away the pain, sweetheart.
Wipe away the fear.
Reach out, my love.
Reach out and take my hand.
I want to feel the warmth of your hand wrapped around mine.
I want to feel your fingers intertwined in mine.
Stand up, angel.
Stand up from your lonely corner.
And smile, sugar.
Smile to the world.
The world wants to see you.
The world needs to see you.
I’ll take you from the darkness.
I’ll lead the way to happiness.
Just show me your bright smile and blue eyes.
Just show me your rosy cheeks and soft skin.
The journey won’t break us.
The journey won’t split us up.
We’ll do it together.
We’ll do it for us.
Our love will never leave or fade away.
Our love will always be in the bottom of our hearts,
Tightly holding on,
never losing grip,
and never losing strength,

The author's comments:
I was living in Switzerland with a family that had a little 9-year-old girl. She quickly became one of my best friends (even though I was 16). Some days, she would get really upset and cry. During these times, I couldn't ask her what was wrong because I didn't know enough germ an. She's one of the main reasons that I am fluent in Germ an today. My efforts were all for her.
