I Will Be Here

I love Stephen Curtis Chapman's music. I Will Be Here just played on my iTunes and I thought of something my sister BethAnn did a few weeks ago that seemed to work with this one. I didn't include names, but there is a certain name to go with each.

Tomorrow morning if you wake
up and the sun does not appear
I will be here
~My friend, one of these days the sun will start shinning for you.
If in the dark, we lose sight of love
Hold my hand, and have no fear
'Cause I will be here
~My brother who lost his way and lost his true love because of it.

I will be here
When you feel like being quiet
When you need to speak your mind
I will listen
~My sister, you've always done this for me; now it's my turn.
And I will be here
When the laughter turns to cryin'
Through the winning, losing and trying
We'll be together
I will be here
~My sister, no matter what comes of our current challenges, we're only a phone call away.

Tomorrow morning, if you wake up
And the future is unclear
I will be here
~My sister who isn't sure of the right path for her future.
Just as sure as seasons were made for change
Our lifetimes were made for these years
So I will be here
~My brother, 14 years is not long enough.

I will be here
And you can cry on my shoulder
When the mirror tells us we're older
I will hold you
~My friend who dreams of a time when things were simpler; when we were younger.
And I will be here
To watch you grow in beauty
And tell you all the things you are to me
I will be here
~My best friend forever, you are becoming a beautiful young woman, and I hope one day you will be able to see that too.

I will be true to the promise I have made
To you and to the One who gave you to me
~My brother, I will keep my promises and I thank God for you everyday.

Tomorrow morning, if you wake up
And the sun does not appear
I will be here
Oh, I will be here
