Shy Animal

A shy animal is one that WILL bite from fear.
How is it that you are the only one who could hear
That Shy animals sometimes walk on two legs as well?

You gave me time - to straighten out what needed to be done.
What I am , what I have done - you share the praise.
And now that things are finally coming together,
You are not here to see it.
I cannot tell you.
Its not all better now
Maybe it will never be .

But you gave me back what I had lost.
You backed me up and just let me be.
The wisdom of your words,
When last we met.
I would not have backed down for anyone
I backed down for you , so great was my respect.
You have kept your promise.
You have kept me safe.
Even Now.
