They say
"Hold on, don't you let go" they say
"Hold on, grab my hand, I'll pull you to the top with me" they say
"I can't carry your burdens but I can carry you" they say
" No matter how bad you want to fall in the fire, your fire, letting the fires inside of you consume you, I won't let you" they say

They say a lot but what they show is more
That is more than anything
They watch as you reach the top
Even if it costs them a bit
They still are that smiling face in the doorway
That sweet phone call when you thought it was the end
A simple word
A simple prayer
A simple support
A simple thought is all it takes to bring this to life
