Always watching

was watching you sleep the other day
And prayed that it would last
The peace that rested on your face
I’d never seen in the past
I was watching you speak a while ago
And hoped that you’d go on
The way your words, they had no end
Your Spirit seemed so strong
I was watching you fight the other day
And prayed my tears would dry
All this I knew was done for me
And couldn’t figure out why
I was watching you smile a couple of days ago
And stared in total awe
Was it me who made you shine?
Was that triumph that I saw?
And all this time you’ve waited
And all this time you’ve helped
And all the things you sacrificed
For me to grow up well
And all the tears you’ve dried
And all the pain you soothed
And all the truths you have to hide
Without one simple Thank You
But I was watching you today
And I realized that I can’t wait
To tell you how much I appreciate
And love you in every way .
