The One Thing

The stillness in the midnight air,

rushes to your skin.

Raising each and every hair,

where do I begin?


The story starts long ago,

a connection that was sure to last.

In your belly is where I began,

we met so incredibly fast.


I don’t know what I’d do without you.

I surely would not be alive.

You gave me a chance to finally see,

a world full of surprise.


You gave me shelter, food, and clothes,

and little did I know.

I’d be stranded on this island,

with no place to go.


The great thing is I have no doubt,

that it will be okay.

I have my mother by my side,

to give me love each day.
