Please, Take Off Your Shoes and Stay for Awhile

To stand in the dark and face the world alone:
It’s a hard thing
If you want to be the one to show me the way, go ahead—Do it
I can’t walk these streets by myself
I need your love to be right beside me
I need you to be holding my hand, leading
Showing me the right way to go
I want you to
I want you to film me taking my first steps
I want you to show me how to tie my shoes;
I want you to help me onto my first pony ride
I want you to be there right on my side when were making your birthday cake
I want you to be there when I turn 16 and get my first car
I want you to be there when I’m 18 and I graduate high school
I want you to be there watching me get my diploma
I want you to walk me down the isle, arms linked, side by side
And once I reach the end, promise me—you’ll never let go
