Poetry: Lead Me Home

Because I’m also a musician, a lot of my poetry has a rhythm to it and even a melody. I tend to never forget my poetry because when I think of a specific one, I can hear its ‘music.’ — Dani

Lead Me Home

Lead me there
Take me to the place beyond
Call me home
Just don’t leave ’til the dawn
The night is dark
And the shadows dance around
Caging me
By the candlelight I’ve found

I will need you
To guide me through
This night
Lead me home

Lead me there
Protect me from this storm
Shield my life
Pick me up when I am torn
The night is dark
And the shadows dance around
I’m afraid
That my soul will be undone

I will need you
To guide me through
This night
Lead me home
