When you are frightened, I am the voice that comforts you.
When you are hurting, I am the one that soothes you.
When you feel lost, I am the hand that guides you.
When you're alone, I am there beside you.
When it is dark, I am the light.
When things go wrong, I make them right.
When you stumble, I will hold your hand.
When you fail, I will understand.
Things happen for a reason,
there’s nothing we can do.
Just know that there’ll always be someone
who’s watching over you.
Dedicated to the memory of Alzira Rodrigues.
