"Who's my getaway?"

It's not easy to deal with all the negativity being thrown my way.

I hide, pretend I don't hear it, and if that doesn't work I run away.

My footsteps lead me to you, and you end up making everything okay.

Even if I just see you for short a moment I wouldn't want it any other way.

Hearing your sweet and inspirational words makes my day less gray.

Watching you smile and laugh makes me wonder how I used to live my days.

You know exactly what to do to when my thoughts threaten to go astray.

When my day has been hard you become my getaway. 

I can't afford to lose you, you who keeps my sadness at bay.

My happiness became you...a sacred name I promised not to say.
