“I Will” by Michele DeSocio

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 cannot 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.
