Sentry

1


Hold me

until the fear of sleep subsides
your hand is warm on mine
covering my heart like a blanket.
Hold me
until the fear of falling subsides
you’re an anchor holding me
tethered to the shore.
Hold me
until I sleep and dream
you’re a soldier fighting
those that try to destroy me
Hold me
until I begin to breathe again
you’re a sentry
guarding the barbed-wire fence
surrounding my heart.
