I Need You
by Linda Margaret Fitzgerald
I need you...
I need your strong arms around me.
I need to feel the gentle warmth of your cheek next to mine.
I need the closeness of you, the safety of you.
I feel such peace and contentment and joy with the nearness of you.
Without you, I feel the chill of indifference.
I feel the insecurities of a painful past.
I feel lost, searching for a warm place to lay my weary head.
I feel the weight of the world forcing me to my knees.
I feel such hopelessness and defeat.
To be a whole, loving person I need your complete and honest love...
I need you... Always.
