When you are feeling so afraid
there is always one who can save the day
someone you called today
and told you, "I am on my way."
This person listened and heard what you had to say
and didn't grunt and groan and hang up the phone
but calmed you down by saying "I am on my way"
and these words calmed your fears away.
There are many like this person in the world
who will laugh, dance, and twirl
across the danceroom floor of life
to help you chase away all the strife
that has made you miserable and sad.
Who is this person that is so dear to all of us?
Who is it that waited as we stepped off of the bus?
Who is this person who hugged and showed us they cared?
Who is this person who makes us unaware?
Who is this person who comes to your rescue,
With only thoughts of urgency for you?
We call this person at the days end,
our one and only
With super love and big as the sky hugs,
"If I have to be this girl in me, Then I have the right to be."
