I’m a creature of comfort

Not the type to stray far from what she knows.

You’ve gently held my shell open

so I can step outside and see all the wonders around me.

You take my hand with a teasing smile

as you propel me right to the edge of security.

You remind my aged soul of younger days

With laughter and playfulness.

Take me to the edge again

I want to feel the wind on my face as I’m falling

with you and for you.
