As the leaves fall

And the warmth fades

And you’re struggling to stand tall–

I will be here.

I will be here

Even when you tell me to go.

Even when I’m tired

Of the same ol’ things we know.

Through the fights

And the inevitable tears.

Through the changing of brand new leaves

And the rest of our years.

And I know you’ll be here too.

Through all the drama that will ensue

And the eye-rolling

that you’ll witness a time or two…

Because I’m yours

And you’re mine.

That alone makes

My entire world brightly shine.

If a time ever comes when the leaves

Don’t grow back

And I’ve lost you to the the rain,

Or rather love,

That we lack.

If a time ever comes when the weather

Wears us down,

Like the pounding of rain

eroding a rock,

And you slip away from me

As on heaven’s doors you knock–

I will be here.
