The time has come for me to leave.
All though we may have parted ways, I’ll walk by your side.
I’ll walk by your side on your worst days, the ones where you want to cry.
I’ll walk by your side on your best days, the one where your smile is bright, and your heart is full.
I’ll walk by your side with honor and pride.
When the Sun shines, and the warm Summer breeze blows through the tree’s,
know that it’s me.
When the Red Cardinal lands outside your window on a cold, snowy Winter’s day,
Know that it’s me.
I’ll guide you when you have no direction,
I’ll help you back up when you fall.
I’ll stand by your side when your best moments arrive,
with pride in my heart, and a gleam in my eye.
Know that I’ll walk with you through it all.
