I'm right here

Through times of stress and times of pain,
You can count on me to keep you sane.
If you can promise me,
you’ll be around through the whole ride,
No matter what,
I’ll be by your side.
And when nobody’s there to hold your hand,
I’ll be right there through it all
‘cause I understand…
And there may be times,
When things don’t look bright,
Just think of me and begin to write.
You may shed a tear now and then,
Just remember,
you have a strong heart…
Baby it will mend.
