I'd like to capture a rainbow

and stick it in a big box

so that anytime I wanted to

I could reach in

to pull out my own piece of sunshine.


I'd like to build you a mountain

that you could call your very own.

A place to find serenity

in those times when you

feel the need to be closer to the sky.


I'd like to be the one

who's there with you when you're

lonely or troubled

or just need someone to

hold onto.


I'd like to do all of this

and more

to make your life happier.


But sometimes

it just isn't as easy to do

the things I would like to do

and give the things I would

like to give.

It isn't within reach.


So until I learn how to

catch rainbows

and build mountains,

let me do for you

that which I know best.


Let me simply be

your friend.


To shed sunshine

on your days

when they seem dark.


And hold you up

when you feel low.
