I stood by your bed last night, even though you didn't see.
The truth is I've been crying, and I found it hard to sleep.
I whispered "Goodnight" softly, as I brushed away a tear.
It's me. I'm all around you, and I always will be here.

I was close to you at breakfast. I watched you endlessly.
And I thought of all the countless times your hands reached out to me.
I was near you as you walked today, your body getting sore.
I wished that I could talk to you. I wished I could do more.

I keep trying just to let you know you matter.
Let you go, let you see,
You mean so much to me.
I keep trying hard.
At times I think you know it's me.
But in the end you still have no idea,
I'm everywhere you see.

I was with you in the car that day. I hope you felt me there.
I knew where things were going, and I watched how you'd prepare
Each day to walk towards the house, as you stumbled nervously.
I watched you from a distance. I'm everywhere you'll be.

I'll stay with you alone the night to keep you sound and safe.
And I promise I will guard you, for it's written in my fate.
You look so very tired, like it's all too much to bear.
I wish that I could let you know that I am standing there.

Cuz I keep trying just to let you know it matters.
Let you go, and let you see,
You mean so much to me.
And I keep trying hard.
And times I think you know it's me.
But in the end you still have no idea,
I'm everywhere you see.

*Instrumental Bridge*

I long to put my hands on you, to hold you once again.
And I want so bad to finish, what we barely began.
I pray somehow to show you all that words cannot convey.
So you'll know inside that I am never very far away.

You sat there very quietly. I wondered if you knew,
Throughout the day and evening, just how close I am to you.
My heart begins to smile when I look and see you yawning.
Tomorrow I'll be back again, to see you in the morning.

I say goodnight just one more time, yet I know you'll never hear,
Anything except the thunder as I quickly disappear.
In the darkness where I hide, a trace of where I used to be.
May you piece together someday that I'm everywhere you see.

And when the time is right on que to cross the great divide,
I will rush across to meet you. Then we'll stand here side by side.
I've so many things to show you. There's so much for you to see.
But for now just live your journey out, then come on home with me.

And I'll keep trying just to let you know it matters.
Let you go, and let you see,
You mean so much to me.
And I keep trying hard.
At times I think you know it's me.
But in the end you still have no idea,
I'm everywhere you see.

*Fading Out*

I'll keep trying just to let you know it matters.
Let you go, and let you see,
You mean so much to me.
And I keep trying hard.
And times I think you know it's me.
But in the end you still have no idea,
I'm everywhere you see.
An old, old song that I came across this weekend while sorting through some old papers crammed in a folder. How convenient..

Inspired by a childhood wish that I made to send a part of myself to my special person and future partner, to watch over them and keep them safe until we could meet in real life.

Strange concept to some, perhaps. And I know it's really long and not very polished at all, but please look past it. I was young when I wrote it. I'm ashamed to have forgotten about it. :(
