As I stared
Into your blue eyes
what-ifs and questions
fill my mind
and and these winding thoughts unwind
and twisting words untwist
while you stand me proud
my heart dares to ask you this
you're here now as I'm strong
but what if I grow weak?
If my body's shutting down,
or my feeble mind grows meek?
Although you see me now as tall,
what will happen if I fall?
or in other's eyes grow small?
Will you be here through it all?
or will you run far north from here?
out of spite and shameful fear.
Will you remember the pain?
Will you forget the smiles?
As you run across,
those endless miles.
would you find a bright new shining face?
to join you in your loves race.
Would you leave me in the dark?
left to slowly fall apart
to spend the remainder of my days.
Thinking back on all the ways
How your sweet smile
made me smile
your kisses made me swoon
wondering what I did
to leave our love in ruins.
So before we take this leap
to begin our inevitable fall
Answer me one question
will you be there when I fall?
