I believe if not for
If not for you
My sun wouldn't shine.
You are my hope.
There is an ebony tunnel
With an end where the light shines.
It is strong not merely to show the way,
But a guide, like pure wine flows.
I have no shame but only
My wisdom to go into the light.
Dark corners were visited on the way.
There was an intricate tangle, as one would
Find in a spiders web.
I believe if not for you
I would be dead, but
I didn't and the sun shines as you
Lead me home.
