Here and There

I saw you there
your smile so sweet
eyes full of wonder

I held you there
felt the bones beneath your clothes
caressed your scarred fingers

I promised you
in my heart and with my voice
promised to find find someone

I left you there
walked away wiping my tears
knowing what I had to do

I found someone
a mama to love you
to fight for you

I'm here
waiting for you
fighting for you

I'm praying for you
It is all I can do
Pray for you

You are there
I am here
He is with both of us

He sees you there
He knows your smile
He knows your eyes
He knows the bones beneath your clothes
He knows my promise
He knows my tears
He knows my heart
He hears my prayers
