If you were mine.
If you were my child, I’d hold you close,
I’d dry your tears and listen to your words.
If you were here, with sadness in your eyes,
I’d wrap my arms around you until you had strength.
If you were my son, I’d give you the moon,
But not the sun or the stars.
The moon is the light that shines through the darkness.
The peak in the night, the thing there to calm us.
If I could reach you, I’d offer my hand,
I’d pull you from the depths and show you the world.
Through all your smiles and fears.
I’d guide you.
If you stumbled I’d catch you,
It’s okay to fall. I’d show you the wolf,
so courageous and loyal.
His nature to protect, he wouldn’t fail.
I’d give you love.
