You sway my tree, blow my leaves
You ring my chimes and spin my pin wheel
You rattle my house
You created a storm
You shake my soul
And you make me shiver..
You blow my securities away so all that is left in Io securities
You make me bundle up so I don’t get cold
You wind blows my skin back and exposes my vulnerabilities,
My darkest fears and my self doubts..
They say to evacuate because the winds are strong
But I stand here stronger than the winds you blow
I don’t need to be sheltered
Not under a tree
When your storm comes through you rock my world everytime
When the wind blows in your direction will you stand strong for me..
Will you board up your windows…will you weather the storm?
Or will you run, evacuate, flee or blow away
stand in a field with me and say “I am free” with arms spread wide
Guess what baby girl..
I boarded up my windows
Secured my belongings
You can huff and puff…and try to blow my house down
Im not rattled enough to run
Im not shaken enough to stop loving you
Im not gonna evacuate no matter how strong the wind gets
At the end of the day…you spin my pin wheel
When you smile you rattle my leaves
When you cuddle you shake me to my bones.
I will stand in your wind storm and take the bumps and bruises.
Until one day … blue skies and calm tides we will enjoy.
