I couldn’t see but, you were always there,
Standing calm and silent like prayer.
In dark and dreary times,
You were there to hold me tight.
In sunny and happy days,
You were there to sustain my smile.
Alas! I couldn’t see as unaware.
When I was frail and broken,
You were there to cheer.
When I was hale and hearty,
You were there to take care.
Alas! I couldn’t perceive as unaware.
When I cried and shed tears,
You whispered hope in my ears.
When I was naïve and couldn’t dare,
You infused courage and wiped all my fears.
Alas! I couldn’t recognise as unaware.
As soon as my bumptious ignorance will disappear, and
Murky vision becomes clear; sure I’m, to see you standing,
As you were always there.
