when it’s raining in your heart
i will put my umbrella over it.
when your coffee is bitter,
i will be the sugar.
when your heart is breaking
i’ll buy a hundred band-aids.
when you’re feeling small,
i’ll tell you that you’re brave.
when you’re feeling tired,
i will let my shoulders be your pillow.
wherever you are,
there i’ll be.
whatever you need,
here is me.
