Who am i to grant you freedom

To be your gate keeper

Who am i to keep you to myself

To selfishly lock the door

I keep you safe in a guise

Of keeping you for as long as i can 

Afraid that at any moment

You may make the choice not to return

I put on the noble air of protector

But am truly afraid of being left alone

I hope my fear does not diminish my love 

And that you will forgive me my faults
