Saving You


I never thought
I could save the world,
but if I save you from yours,
I've accomplished my purpose.


I want to be your shelter
from the storm;
I want to fix you
where you're broken.


I'll pick you up
when you fall
and help you carry
life's burdens.


I'll keep you warm
on those cold nights;
I'll surrender my desires
so yours are fulfilled.


I'll be your home
when you find yourself homeless;
I'll be your hope
when you've become hopeless.


I'll be everything you ask
and whatever you need
but don't realize
if it meant saving you.
