The Saviour

I wish I could erase this for you, make it all go away.

Make you smile and laugh like the good old days.

Pull you in close, rest your head by my heart.

Hold you together when you're about to fall apart.

Steal your pain away and put it on myself.

I don't care if I'm upset, as long as it will help.

I know his body's beaten down and he tires very quickly.

I couldn't imagine seeing someone I love so much be so sickly.

But if you stay strong, so will he.

You'll give him a reason to keep going when he'd rather collapse on his knees.

I'll be your shoulder to cry on, but I'd rather see tears of joy.

Keep hope and faith for the day to come when he'll be that happy, healthy boy.

That boy, that same brother that he used to be.

We just need to try to keep it together, at least when he sees.

Every day he sees his older brother, so big and strong; and he longs to grow up to be like you.

So let's give him the hope he needs to carry on, and one day see that through.

In the meantime I'll be here for you, waiting until you're ready.

You don't even have to say a word, but I'll still hold your shaky hands steady.

I know you're afraid to leave his side in case anything goes wrong.

You're terrified that if you disappear for one second, in that time he could be gone.

But miracles happen every day, you just have to believe that dreams come true.

I believe a miracle will take him into its healing hands, because his time on this earth isn't through.

So let's believe and wish together that his dream will also come true.

Before you know it he'll be happy and healthy again, and he'll grow up to be an amazing guy like you.
