When smiles no longer beam bright

And white teeth hide behind thin-lipped greetings

Of hello and goodbye, I will hear you

When your hands, wrapped tightly around

What you love tremble and shake from fear

I will be with you

On the days your heart beats to the pace

Of light years, my song will be your anthem

On the nights your eyes mirror the stars and your skin

Mirrors the midnight sky, I will call you beautiful and mean it
