Who will be there when you cling?
Who will seize your fainting swoons?
Who will be there when you sing?
Who will feel your touching croons?
Who will be there when you call?
Who will hear your stirring pleas?
Who will be there when you fall?
Who will stay your keeling knees?
Who will be there when you weep?
Who will dry your drenching tears?
Who will be there when you sleep?
Who will ease your morning fears?
Who will be there when you chaff?
Who will crave your loving strokes?
Who will be there when you laugh?
Who will prize your pleasing jokes?
Who will be there when you wake?
Who will sense your running start?
Who will be there when you ache?
Who will mend your breaking heart?
