Feel strength in these arms
Feel safe knowing they protect you
Feel love in these fingers that will wipe away your tears
Know that as they touch your face they say
I care and I would have you no other way
See them holding yours
Saying they belong here
Feel love in this heart.
Giving you certainty when all seems against you
That there is always one on your side
No ‘I told you so’s.’ No expectations.
Just pride in you
And know this my sweet one
I will be behind you when you need strength.
In front of you when you need a hug.
Beside you when you need a friend.
