I Will


I Will

When you forget I will remember for us both

When you get lost I will find you

When you are sad I will be sad with you

When the fear comes I will comfort you

When you cry I will dry your tears

When you lash out at me I will not be angry

When you repeat I will have patience

When you forget my name I will understand

When you can no longer eat I will feed you

When your legs fail I will carry you

When you long for home I will be your safe place

When your journey is ending I will be by your side

I will love you for eternity

I Will...
