I Am a Presence

As sure as the sun wakes up the earth
as morning dew sparkles like diamonds
giving us glimpses of hope for what’s to come
I am a presence in your life
that will always be, oh, can’t you see
I share your every step, your every breath
I feel every pain and laugh with every joy
that tickles your life

I am a presence
that is with you, through thick and thin
oh if only you knew, I have always been
even in times I cannot show
even in times you couldn’t have known
I have always been there
for I cannot be anywhere else

Feel my wings embrace you
and brush away your tears
feel my love dissolve your fears
and in that moment
know that you are dearly loved
