Don’t you dare cry, but if you do, know that I will be there to dry those tears that so foolishly fall from your eyes.
Don’t you dare fall, but if you do, know that I will be there by your side, know that I will lend you not a hand but more, I will lend you my happiness and my love, so you too can feel some joy for once.
Don’t you dare fear, but if you do I will hold your hand and wrap my arms around you, I will shield you from your demons, from the dark and all that it may hold.
So don’t you dare say you are alone, but if you do, I will wake you from your state of drowse, and make you see how I have always been here, never left you without a home, a house.
So don’t you dare give up what you have, but if you do, so will I, when all I have is you. -H
