It I reach for you,
Will you be there?
To comfort me,
With things I cannot bear?

If I reach for you,
Will you hold me fast?
Until my fearfulness
Has passed?

If I reach for you,
Will you keep me calm?
And give respite
From any qualm?

If I call out for you
To acknowledge my prayer,
And I reach for you,
Will you be there?
