I’ll Be There

Ill Be There short poem

Anytime the nights are long and scary
The spider in the corner with legs so hairy
The nightmare left you cold and scared
You know I’ll be there

Anytime the dawn brings fear and worry
The hours ticking by as you try not to hurry
The stresses and strains are beyond compare
You know I’ll be there

Anytime the tears come rolling down
Cold damp cheeks beneath a furrowed frown
The pains and the sorrow are going nowhere
You know I’ll be there

Anytime you feel that you just want to rest
Within protective arms against my chest
The sanctuary where you don’t need to care
You know I’ll be there

Anytime the thought of the coming night
Creates cold dread and deep dark fright
The sweat soaked pillow neath your flowing hair
You know I’ll be there

Anytime the dark harbours demons of hate
That leave you running for the dreaming gate
In the tattered rags of the clothes you wear
You know I’ll be there

Anytime you want me to hold you close
Anytime you feel that you are missing most
Anytime your eyes search near and far
You know, My Love, I’ll always be there.
