Be for me an angel

to watch me while I sleep

Be for me a blanket

to comfort while I weep

Be for me a shadow

and follow me where I go

Be for me a teacher

to teach what I don't know

Be for me a leader

to tell me what is right

Be for me a soldier

when I'm wounded and cannot fight

Be for me a smile

to cheer me in the morning

Be for me a parent

who says everything with a warning.

Be for me a hand

that I can hold as we walk

Be for me two ears

which will listen when I talk

Be for me a flashlight

that lights up alleys in the dark

Be for me a bench

I can sleep on in a park

Be for me a love

I can use to find my soul

Be for me the goalie

who doesn't block my goals

Be for me a poet

help me write my rhymes

Be for me a person

I can run to anytime

Be for me an angel

My angel my love
