Whatever It Takes

Whatever It Takes

A Poem by A.Lee

I don’t want to see you cry, my dear

I want those tears to fade

I’m going to help your head stay high

Through good, through bad, through worse

 

You’ve been my rock, the love of my life

You've sustained me through thick and thin

Now I want to hold your hand in mine

So now I can bring you in

 

Because it hurts to see you downhearted

And I don’t know what to do

Sometimes I can make you smile

But sometimes its hard for me too

 

I try to remove your burdensome load

Make it light as I possibly can

Take steps to make your pathway clear

So you can get to the end

 

I’ll take my stand in front of you

A chess pawn before her king

No one touches a hair on your head

Without first going through me

 

I’ll be a burro for your burden

A filter for your pain

I’ll find the ways to make you smile

To make you happy again

 

I don’t want to see you hurt, my dear

I want the hurt to fade

I’m going to help your head stay high

No matter what it takes

A pretty and thoughtful song...I I liked the images in '’ll be a burro for your burden
A filter for your pain'... Warm hearted writing.

Beautiful poem. This is my favorite stanzas:

I’ll take my stand in front of you

A chess pawn before her king

No one touches a hair on your head

Without first going through me


Good write.
