I was afraid to walk into my pain,
but I saw you standing there.
Your arms opened wide, so I’d slip right inside,
I could feel how much you cared.
My tears fell like rain, again and again,
but you gathered them all, as you felt all my pain.
I know who you are, for you’ve never been far.
I know that you care, for you’ve always been there.
And though I may hurt all the way to my soul,
You are the one who has felt every hole.
And so I will enter my pain, for I know,
You’ll always be standing there.
