I want to be there when you
See the dawn of gray
And the rain scrapes away 
The warmth of the sun
Leaving you lonely in isolation

I want to stand the test of time
In the face of extremes that
Cripple the others around me
So you know I am always here
Looking down at your presence

I want to be your beacon
The unforgettable symbol of your life
So that when you return from the depths
I can shade you from the trials of the world
Like arms holding you during nights of fear

I want to be the evergreen across the street
Giving breath to a life so precious.
