I see the light at the end
of this long tunnel up ahead.
It shines like the sun in the night.
I long to run, but I must walk
for I have you at my side
firmly grasping my hand.
You have led me through
the darkest shadows of this world
and helped me up the tallest cliffs.
I have never been lost because of you,
and I know for certain I never will be.
I know you will always be at my side.
But the light at the end of the tunnel
is steadily looming ahead.
I fear that when I reach it
I will no longer be able to hold your hand.
Don’t leave my side, stay here
hold my hand and never leave.
However I know that there will be times
when you must let go of my hand.
I know that I must be left alone
at those times of pure happiness.
But I know that when the shadows return
you will return to guide me again.
