You know that special place,

That place you could always escape to,

It was safe and comforting,

It always had your back,

It calmed you beyond words,

It kept you grounded,

It propped you up,

It helped you reset,

It protected you long enough to compose yourself,

It might have been a hot shower,

It might have been a lonely hill,

It might have been a park bench,

It might have been in your mind,

It might have been an activity,

You might have needed a combination of these,

They are important,

They are at times life savers,

I used to rely on my own in times of trouble,

Recently I thought I had outgrown my need,

Until I realised they had all disappeared,

They disappeared the moment I met you.
