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.
