Even if I cut all ties with the world
A piece of thread would still connect us,
Silver and durable
Not even the Fates could cut it.
All your easy smiles
That wash away the big bad thoughts
That threaten me with gnashing teeth
And long sharp claws.
Are instantly thwarted with your magic words
And a ruffling of hair.
You are my lifeline
Eternal, constant, the one certain light-
At the end of the tunnel.
Making life simply good again.
