You took him under your wing,
And smothered him in your embrace,
You took away his everything,
But don't quit.

All his requests, denied,
All his hope in this, burned.
Like a thorn that stuck in his side
Through all of it.

You lift him choking down a smile
As the tears roll down his face
The pain was gone, after a while
But please don't quit.

The love today is gone tomorrow
The games they played, the tables turned
You filled his life with sadness, sorrow
But please don't ever quit.
