To hold you up

if you start to fall

and fly to your side

whenever you call.


To hold you close

when dark closes in,

I’ll feed your heart

and beat from within.


To feel your warmth

and the glow of your smile,

when the clouds are parted

we can see for miles.


To hold your hand

through life’s testing times,

to shield and protect

on those slippery climbs


And once the crest

has again been achieved,

to watch you sleep,

see you smile; be relieved.
