I turn to you

When I'm the rain
in your eyes I know I'll find the light
to light my way

To say that all of my life has been a struggle would be an understatement. And it wasn’t till now that I started to feel sorry for myself, if that’s what you call this feeling. Ginny wouldn’t. She called this grieving. According to her, I hadn’t let myself grieve for the loss of Sirius or my parents. She says that just like herself I pushed down all my feelings and let my whole self fill up with all these emotions until suddenly they would all explode out, clouding over me like a storm.

When I'm scared
losing ground
when my world is going crazy
you can turn it all around

Even though I was at the quidditch pitch at the time and I had been there a million times before, I felt lost and it was dark.
And she came and found me there. Her hand gently rested on my shoulder


I turned to face her as her eyes concernedly gazed into mine

“Why are you sitting here alone in the dark”? With a swish of her wand the quidditch pitch was set alight.

“There that’s better,” she whispered sitting down next to me.

We sat in silent for a few moments when she finally asked the question I knew she’d been dying to ask, the one everyone had been asking me lately.

“Harry are you ok?”

“Sure “ I answered in a monotonous voice. It had become to easiest thing to say.

She sighed loudly and turned to me.

“The truth Harry”

I couldn’t lie to those eyes
And when I'm down you're there
pushing me to the top
You're always there giving me all you've got

I stared at the ground “No”

Instead of the normal reply a friend usually greets with this answer of what’s wrong

Ginny told me outright what I needed to do

“You need to cry”

“Excuse me”?

“Get angry, scream just do something” she fidgeted with a loose thread on her sleeve

“Don’t hold it in like I did, Sirius wouldn’t want to see you like this and neither would your parents, they’d want you to live your life”

I stood up, my eyes flashing furiously

“Move on, live my life, gee last time I checked Ginny, I didn’t have my own life, I was to busy saving others from death not to mention being Voldemort’s torture toy.

For a shield, from the storm
for a friend, for a love
to keep me safe and warm
I turn to you
for the strength, to be strong
for the will to carry on
for everything you do
for everything that's true
I turn to you-ooh

She could have walked away; she could have set me straight. But she knew I was hurting. She knew I needed to vent, that’s just the kind of person she is.
She reached out to me and pulled me to herself in a bone-crashing hug.

It was there I found solace, the strength to be strong.

A tear slid down my cheek as I hugged her back.

When I lose...the will to win
I just reach for you
And I can reach the sky again
I can do anything
'Cause your love is so amazing
'Cause your love inspires me
And when I need a friend
You're always on my side
Giving me faith
taking me through the night

For a shield, from the storm
For a friend, for a love
To keep me safe and warm
I turn to you
For the strength, to be strong
For the will to carry on
For everything you do
I turn to you-ooh, yeah ooh

From there after we me at the pitch every night, even when there was nothing to say, she was there, and when there was she would listen, she would hold my hand, hug me, comfort me.

For the arms to be my shelter
Through all the rain
For truth that will never change
For someone to lean on
For a heart I can rely on through anything
For the one who...I can run to...oh right

Ginny and I started to become closer. It wasn’t like the closeness I shared with Ron and Hermione, I had someone who always understood what I felt, I had someone to relate to. I had a girl who could with her just being there, without my asking, without my knowing; give me all that I needed. And not to long after I started my 7th year we became more then friends.
And I know for certain that no matter what I may have to go through that I’ll always have her there, that she is the one I can forever turn to.

For a shield from the storm
For a friend, for a love
To keep me safe and warm, yeah yeah
I turn to you
For the strength to be strong
For the will to carry on
For everything you do
For everything that's true
For everything you do
For everything that's true
I turn to you...ooh

A/n : Short huh?, I don’t think this is one of my best but anyways you can tell me :).
