If I Could

If I could, I would hold you in my arms forever,
an embrace where you’ll always find shelter.  
I’d be there when you feel you’re on your own,
to give you my word, you’ll never be alone. 

If I could, I’d be with you every night,
to fight your demons with all my might.
Every time you feel lost, I’d be by your side,
to coax a smile out of your every sigh.   

If I could, I’d be there each and every day,
to watch over you, and keep the world at bay. 
I’d take your sorrow and make it mine,
to banish the winter from your mind.

If I could, I’d gladly hold up the sky,  
so your dreams can take wing and fly.
If only I could, I’d spend an eternity with you,
to tell you, over and over, my love for you is true.
