I want to be there when you cry,
To hold you close and breathe each sigh.
Whate'er the reason for each tear you see,
I'll do this for you because you'd do it for me.
I want to whisper words of love,
And say you're the one I'm thinking of.
I want to walk the shores of sand
Holding you close,
Walking hand in hand.
And when the light of life grows dim,
And I release you to the arms of Him
Who gave you and your love to me,
When I send you home eternally,
I'll dearly remember every day
That you and I shared along life's way.
I'll speak your name as a lullaby
Until we meet again in our home on high.
