Fear Keeps

Can’t you stay awake?
I need you.
I know you’re tired,
But I am too.
I’m just so scared.
If you give me a minute,
I’d try to fall asleep.
I really meant it.
Please, don’t leave me.
It’ll get me.
I don’t want to face it.
Make it let me be.
I just want to rest
And get some sleep.
I don’t want to sit up all night
With nothing to do but weep.
Please give me comfort.
Help my heart.
I know he loves me,
But he’s tearing me apart.
Let’s just talk and then
You can see me to sleep.
I would let you go to sleep,
But fear only keeps.

Inspiration: I use to be horrified of the night, the dark, and going to sleep.
Praise Jesus for setting me free! That went well into my early 20s.
