I Will Be There

When you laugh,
I'll be there to laugh with you.
When you cry,
I'll wipe your tears away.
When you're in pain,
I'll be there by your side,
I'll hold you tight,
Everything'll be alright,
'Cause I will be there.

When you speak,
I'll be there to listen,
When you want to be silent,
I won't say a word,
When you dance,
I will dance with you
and when you are still,
I'll sit by your side.
I'll gaze into your eyes,
I will not rise.
I will be there.

When you are lonely,
I'll be there to say you're not alone.
When you are happy,
I'll be happy too.
When your spirits are high,
Mine soar to the sky,
And when you tell me you love me,
I'll always love you back.

When the skies seem grey,
and your wings are so heavy,
I'll make the sun shine,
I'll lift you to the sky,
I'll watch you fly,
And if you fall,
I'll be there to catch you.

I'll take your hand,
I'll hold it tight,
So hold on,
It's time to fight.
And when it seems you can't fight any longer,
When your eyes start to close
and your hand goes limp,
Take a look around the room,
'Cause there at your bedside,
Eyes stained with tears,
Praying with hope,

I will be there.
