A poem describing how when darkness is near my girlfriend it will go away when im there.

Close your eyes, hold my hand,
Count to three and the darkness will fade.
With you in my arms you will always be protected,
With you in my grasp you will always be saved.
You have no need to show any sign of fear,
No need to shed any more tears.
Keep my arms amongst your reach,
Watch the darkness fall to my feet.
If ever I’m not there,
And the darkness is in your reach.
Close your eyes, think of me,
Count to three and the darkness will fade.

I applaud your brave heart in showing us a love and desire to protect a another. I do feel some emotion was lost as it was presented as a sort of formula ex: "close ur eyes, hold my hand, count to three.."
I also think this could be stronger if you dont just tell the reader what he/she will recieve in following the orders, but why....maybe also reveal who the speaker is bit more. These are all just suggestions.

I've read through your poem a couple of times and couldn't help but wonder. I looked more closely at the words that rhymed, looked at the rhyming pattern. I wondered . If eyes are shut then darkness invades; it is what is seen.If they eyes are still shut and darkness has gone what replaces it. Strange. If eyes are shut and darkness disappears then has the person opened their eyes. It might seem so.
To create the sentiments you intend to convey I feel means being more direct. Maybe , with all due respect to our writing:
Beloved: no darkness. Never fear.
Our bodies entwined.Love I'm near.

Something like that changes the 'mood' of the poem but still keeps it relevant to the intention of the writer, and meaningful to the reader.
Poetry is never easy , and I'm glad to see you like the work of Maya Angelou. Strong emotion is what drives poetry and a way to strike that special chord within our inner self.
Bes wishes
and keep writing.

I see two types of darkness here, a literal blackness and a figurative darkening of situation and thoughts. Quite a clever nice poem.

I really like the flow of this! Usually poems on here are quite jerky and awkward (No offense to anyone who has jerky or awkward poems...@_@) It's very sweet and touching. Bravo to you, good sir!
