Unseen Hero

You see me everyday
You fail to acknowledge me
When your hurt I'm always near
When I'm beside you
You never notice me
When your facing trials
I pray for you
When your having fun
I stand near by and smile
When your alone
I'm by your side
When your sick
I nurse you back to health
When you lay your head down to sleep
I'm there watching over you during the night
I protect you from all types of harm
I kiss you on the cheek and say sweet dreams
I look back with a smile
When you wake I vanish

    Your referring to yourself as the unseen hero, I believe.
    It's about a girl that you're protecting, like a guardian angel.

    Really good, really sweet.

    Your always protecting her, yet she doesn't even know you're there.
