One-Person World

When you're dished out by life
a shoddy deal
or people cause bruises
that do not heal
when life's in a mess
and you see no end
i'll hold you back from falling
& i'll be your FRIEND

where neighbors are nasty
and colleagues scheming
when your eyes grow tired
and they stop dreaming
i'll teach you lil tricks
i'll make you a pro
i'll cheer from the audience
& i'll be your BRO

when choices confuse you
and you need a second view
i'll fish out the best
that suits right on you
and when you get decked up
i'll plant you a huge kiss
i'll be your best fan
& i'll be your SIS

wronged by your weakness
if you get bitter and hurt
i'll scratch and see the reason
as to why you are curt
i'll know the words to speak
and where to get them from
i'll understand your silences
& i'll be your MOM

lost, if you ever are
and you need a hand to hold
shaking, if your heart feels
and you need to get it bold
i'll remind you of your worth
i'll help you get better
i'll enthuse and motivate you
& i'll be your MENTOR

need hug? come to me
i'll kiss and cover your face
need strength? look in my eyes
see life's gift and grace
i'll be your shield against odds
i'll be your caring cover
i'll dissolve your body in my soul
& i'll be your LOVER

within earshot within eyesight
i'll always stand by you
i'll worship, love and raise you
with trust pure and true
you'll always find me close
my fingers and yours curled
deriving love, mirth and character
i'll be your one-person world.
