You have always been a friend to me. A comfort in the dark, a strength for my fears, confidence in the day. Your warmth enfolds me and keeps me together when the hard freezes nearly shatter my heart. I cannot live without your keeping balance and reminding me that change is constant and tomorrow will always come whether in this life or the next. Though you hide into your secret place, I know you will return again, so I need not concern myself with fears and dreadful what ifs. I will celebrate and delight in quiet confidence that joy comes in the morning.
