Show me the way to your heart, guide me with your hands,
let me open the door to your soul, i promise i’ll be gentle with you.
You are a mystery that mystifies me, a puzzle I want to solve.
If you’ll but open yourself to me, I’ll do my best to figure you out.
You carry scars like the rest of us, but yours I’ll try to heal,
with loving hands to banish pain, and soothe your wounds with kisses sweet.
I’ll let you rest your weary head, close your eyes I’ll keep you safe.
In the circle of my arms, I’ll let you sleep,
so when you wake up, I’ll be the first one you’ll see.
Even if your world is falling, I’ll be here and I’ll hold on,
you’re not alone, never at all, for I’ll be here for you.
If I could chase those shadows that flit and float
behind those dark brooding eyes of yours,
I will capture them and disperse them into the light
to banish the hidden pains and hurts that I saw
as I gaze upon the naked truth I read from your eyes.
If I could take away the doubts and fears that fill your heart,
I will gladly rip them from their tenacious hold
then mend the scars they leave behind.
With caring and loving hands I bear
until the bleeding stops and you’re ready to heal.
If I could remove the sadness that you bear on stooped shoulders,
I will cast them aside so you can look up with a smile.
For I know the burdens you carry are heavy,
but need I remind you that you’re never alone
no matter how you push me aside?

Through your eyes I saw how pretty life can be,
even when the sun gets obscured by dark clouds,
and the rain comes down pouring hard,
it will always end like problems do
with a bit of sunshine and rainbows too.
Through your eyes I saw how darkness can easily
the mind of someone lost in love and hurt,
but then you showed me what loving hands can do
to hidden wounds and scars of long ago.
Through your eyes I saw how I can be a better version
when I thought I can go no further you were the one
who pulled me onwards.
Now it’s my turn to show you how wonderful life can
if only you took the time to stop and see the world
right here with me.
