As Long As I'M Around - Poem by Jade Leven

nobody can hurt you
as long as I'm around
if they try to keep you down
I'll get you off the ground

don't let them tell you anything
that makes you hurt inside
but whether you give in or not
that is for you to decide

don't let them say those hurtful words
refuse to hear a sound
you'll always be protected
as long as I'm around

I'll fight for you
and all your dreams
your heart is the most beautiful thing
that I have ever seen

the day you came and stood beside me
my heaven was found
you never have to look for love
as long as I'm around
