If Fear Wasn't Here

If Fear wasn’t here
There’d be a hand ready to hold. 
An ear ready to hear. 
Eyes that really see where we wouldn’t know what it is to hide,
Or the bittersweet meaning of goodbyes. 

If Fear wasn’t here,
The act of a yes or no wouldn’t know hesitation.
Change would be welcomed like an overdue embrace.
Happiness and Love wouldn’t seem like such a fantasy.

If only fear wasn’t here, but then would the concept of life be as real?
