You Are the One
(For Rebecca)



You are the one who comforts me,
Who holds my hand
And kisses away the tears.
You are the one who waits around every corner
And listens to the prayers that nobody else hears.
You are the one who questions and who wants to know,
The one who helps me realize that I fill a need here below.
You are the one who dares to bear the burden of my soul,
The one who is always ready with a hug.
Child, don't you know?
You are the one.
