I know I promised I'd never make you cry;
I know it hurts but please dry your eyes.
I will give to you whatever you need;
Hugs, a kiss, just tell me please.
To see you cry is a terrible sight;
Just let me love you and I'll hold you tight.
I'll do anything you want to make you proud;
I'll climb the highest peak and yell your name aloud.
I love you too much to see you cry;
Please sweetheart don't say goodbye.
Don't push me away I must stay near;
To gently wipe away your tears.
If we must truly say goodbye;
One more time just close your eyes.
And let us share one final kiss;
For you are the love, I will forever miss.
