For My Darling Andrew

He stands beside me when the darkness comes
He does not pretend to understand
The confusion I see in his eyes tortures my soul
The demons I fight he cannot comprehend

He makes me struggle to come out this time
When all I want to do is sleep
He reminds me of when there were sunny skies
And the promises I meant to keep

He holds me close though I may not feel
His arms, tender and warm
I simply am fighting an uphill battle
Searching for light in a storm

He whispers he loves me when I shut him away
When I no longer want him so near
He gives assurance that I will be okay
When I give myself to the fear

And when the skies are sunny again
When Iím laughing and dancing in glee
He wonít remind me of times before
Of the darkness from which I couldnít see

He simply loves me through my wicked moods
My depression and obsessions in life
And for these reasons I am so glad
I know the joy of being his wife.


------------------
For sometimes when the Darkness falls, we must surrender, take what is ours, and give what we can, and always remember love is somewhere waiting...

Depressions is a real bastard, but it can make for some great reading. Sounds like you got a good man with a good heart. Be well!
