384 I’ll Be There For You [24 February 2001]

If I could,
I’d reach out and touch your cheek,
wiping the tears away.
I’d hold you in my arms,
letting you know how much I love you.
It is what I would want to do,
whether you wanted it or not.
I wouldn’t speak,
I’d only hold you,
feeling you there with me,
taking what pain I could from you.
Letting you feel me there
so you knew someone
would always be right beside you
through pain and anguish,
happiness and joy,
sorrow and loss,
delight and pleasure.
I’d want you to understand
that as you hold me
when I need comfort from my fears,
I will hold you for the same.
To keep you near,
to take you home,
to love you when you need it.
Always I will be there for you.
