I whispered a prayer to keep you safe
Not from belief or abundance of faith
But for moments when my voice you can’t hear
To send it on wings and show I’m still near
If only my arms were a permanent shield
I’d embrace you to me and never once yield
Not leave your side and be miles away
But holding your hand as night turns to day
I whispered a prayer that I could be where you are
Until that time comes I will never be far
