I could hear the pounding of your heartbeat

Like the pouring of the rain against this old house

Every inch, creaking, from the weight of the world

On shoulders that held more than they should

Taken in stride, as if this was your lot in this life

Never a complaint, you just went about your day

And night couldn’t come soon enough for you

Tired and weary, you had fallen fast asleep

Before I even had the chance to say thank you

For making my world a much better place to live

And this I know, as time passes, and days fade

You will always be the light that guides me

Shining within me, through my own darkest hours
