it is your absence that triggers alarm
the sudden knowing that you are not there
in that one moment of coming aware
and then i hear your voice and i disarm
it's that one second's fear that causes harm
my mind uncertain coming up for air
your warmth is absent that one thing is clear
and then i hear your laughter and your charm
i look outside and know you're on your way
and still my thought is waking all alone
and hearing you and knowing i'm secure
you are the anchor of my every day
the heart of all that's certain and that's known
my centre and my stronghold firm and sure
