I Will Catch You

When you hurt, a piece of my heart breaks.
 When you cry, a piece of my soul, do you take.
Lay your head on my chest as you try not to sob.
 All this stress is too much, and our heads always throb.

I don't know the reason or the why, 
 But I'm here for you, as I silently cry.
You don't always have to be so strong.
 Fall back in my arms where you belong.

I will wrap you in my embrace and hold you tight.
 Let those emotions show, even when they're not shiny and bright.
Grief stricken and not knowing how to cope, 
 That's what I'm here for, to give you hope.

If you can not stand and walk by yourself upright, 
 I am here to carry you, and hold you to me really tight.
Its okay to let yourself be vulnerable and to trust in me.
 You were blind to faith, but now you finally see.

You were left feeling broken down and hollow, 
 You thought you were all alone and no one there to follow.
I've been here all along, you only had to open your heart.
 So now I can hold you, when you fall apart.

I love you more than you could ever possibly know.
 Especially when you are having a hard time and full of woe.
Lean back, and I will catch you when start to fall.
 I wouldn't want you to break my fragile china doll.

To Illyanna, I think you know who this is from......
