FOWC with Fandango — Balance


It was one step at a time

One day at a time

The balance precarious.

So many factors to consider

Morality, personal struggle

Wishfulness, want and need.

Reaching out you took my hand and I yours

We walked the fine line

Disaster looked at us,

Stared us in the face

Retreat so often a preferred strategy.

We dreamed of being in each other’s arms

Of leaving behind the hurt, the trauma

Of childhood, marriage and life expectation.

So often you leant on me

So often I displayed my need of you.

The balance is now in your favour

And that pleases me.
