I will  be there to hold your hand

This is a very special song dedicated to my Grandson. Essentially, my daughter had formed a relationship with someone who really wasn't cut out to be a proper Father or accept the responsibilities, financially and emotionally, that parenthood involves. He certainly wasn't around much as my Grandson was growing up and I tried my best to offer him the love and security that every child needs. "So when you wake up in the dark - I will be there to hold your hand". This is a very emotional song and it often brings a tear to my eye as i play it. 

Of all the things that made me cross, I could never understand

Why in the times when you were lost

He wasn’t there to hold your hand

I will do the best I can , to make up for his loss

So when you wake up in the dark

I will be there to hold your hand

 

Throughout the years I’ve watched you grow

You were such a little man

And as we watched the rainbow set

I squeezed your tiny little hand

When you grow up to be a man I know you’ll understand

That if you ever have a Son

You will be there to hold his hand

 

Of all the things that made me cross, I could never understand

Why in the times when you were lost

He wasn’t there to hold your hand

As Father Time now takes his toll, you’ll find that I can hardly stand

But I know you’ll take my arm

And help me walk out on the sands

 

And at the end you’ll squeeze my hand

As I slip off,  from this land
