When you need me, when you are grieving, when you just can’t take the pain, when the visions of life deceive you, when your dreams don’t work out the right way—I will be there to catch you when you fall.     When nothing you do is good enough, when the world is being way too tough, when the problems are greater than you can solve, when you keep losing your resolve, when the one you love walks away, when your tender heart begins to break—I will be there to love you when it does.

    When you lose your job, when you look like a slob, when your parents won’t listen, when you’re really missing being young, when you don’t know what to do, when every plan is falling through—I will be there for you.

    When you get ridiculed, when you just can’t make it through, when you can’t see the light at the end, when you feel like all your friends are faking it, when you cry all night, when you can’t seem to do anything but lie, when you think your life is through—I will hold you and shoulder the pain.

    When your time comes, when you are weak, when you don’t know whether you’re awake or asleep, when you cry because you have to leave, when you think you just can’t let go, when you want someone to dance with close and slow, when you are really old—I will be dancing with you.     I will always be here, I will always love, I will never leave not even once, I will dream of you till I can’t dream any more, I will always care, I will always stand where you are, because that’s what I want to do, just be here with you, every moment of every day, I want you to be able to say you are loved, you are loved—because it’s completely true, I am in love with you.
