My visions lost within a love excelled,

Arms outstretched with a want to be held,

I reach down and hold such a beautiful dream,

As I look into his eyes I drown within a deep serene.

A giggle echoes from a single baby tooth smile,

This may not be heaven but let me lose myself to denial.

Let me protect you nothing nor no one will ever cause you hurt,

Let me guide you through life help you have all you deserve.

If I see your tears I’ll cry inside with the same pain, let me dry your eyes and see you smile again.

So when your grown and no longer feel the need to be held by your ol’ man,

I’ll still be there for you when you need a helping hand.
