A flash of light and there you stand,

As if waiting for me to come into the world of dreams.

Waiting with dancing eyes, encouraging words, gentle smiles

To brighten my pall of darkness with gentle kisses,

To cheer me up with your wild stories

To hold me close when I'm feeling lonely

To wipe away my tears when the world is upon my shoulders

To ease the passing of pains with sweet words

To help me remember, for the last time,

The feeling of being loved for who I am.
