As I make my way through the maze of life
With mountains to climb, days filled with strife
There are times, when the task seems daunting
The obstacles look insurmountable; there are the demons, haunting.
I close my eyes, and I see your face
The sparks of joy, the hope in your gaze
Nary a blemish, on your beautiful mind
A universe without limit, no anchors that bind.
I take a moment to recall, those moments of bliss
When I hold you, there’s nothing amiss
Your tiny heart, beating in step with mine
Filling me with love, with such joy I cannot define.
With Your tiny arms, wrapped around me tight
Your kisses telling me, everything is all right
You trust me to hold you, to not let go, ever
A bond of faith is sealed, for now, forever.
I have to move on, I cannot stop
For you, my angel, I have to make it to the top
To help you make your own way, fearless, bold
To be there for you, as you take your place in this world
