The Thing I Fear

I have never been one
To fear Death's touch
The pain of a knife
When life becomes to much

I fear not the darkness
In which monster's hide
Nor of the betrayer
In whom it is unwise in which to confide

I fear not that which burns and destroys
That deadly touch of fire
I do not fear cheaters
Those oh so clever liars

I do not fear oblivion
The nothingness in which I lose myself
I do not fear a disease which steals my mind
And stacks memories away on some forgotten shelf

I do fear though
The loss of you
I fear the absence of your loving smiles
And the little things you do

Yes I fear nothing my dear
But losing you
