there is someone watching
there is someone listening
who knows it all

there is someone waiting
there is someone guarding
to catch you when you fall

a shadow in the dark
a shimmer in the light
looking over your shoulder
not seeing, but feeling

a presence unknown
benign, you hope,
malign, you fear,
it’s never shown

going no further,
until it’s all over,
then you see
you should’ve been looking forward,
not over your shoulder

there is someone crying
there is someone holding
you when all crashes down

there is someone laughing
there is someone smiling
when you reach your crown
