What I Would Do For You
For you there's nothing I wouldn't do, there's no such task.
I would walk without my shoes to the end of the Earth,
I would give up anything I had to, to teach you self worth.
I would hold your hand every minute of every day,
But I won't because I know you need to find your own way.
I would surely bear the heartache of your first love that's real,
Even though I can't, I will naturally feel as you feel.
I would sell my soul if it would keep you happy forever,
I would give my right arm to keep us forever together.
I would run a hundred miles up-hill in the rain,
Just to guarantee that you will never feel pain.
I would laugh with you even if I was sad,
I will give you a smile even if I'm mad.
I can only accept your mistakes with a grin on my face,
I will guide you in correcting them, but at your own pace.
I will guide you through life, as this world can get quite wild,
Just don't you ever forget that you will always be my child.
