I have protected
through many years
I have dried your eyes
when you had tears.

I have guided you
through many times
Believing in you always
with each of these rhymes.

I have held you in my arms
a thousand times before
I want you to know
with me you are secure.

Where others have failed
you will succeed
Fulfilling your dreams
with fruitful seed.

I am the guard
in which you built
Protecting you from harm
throwing out the guilt.

The perfect combination
and I will be unlocked
Providing you with warmth
always being docked.

Joining together two spirits
we are one and the same
I have always shielded you
from the struggles and pain.

In times when you were broken
dreams growing dim and dark
I always stood right there
protecting your broken heart.
