As clouds swirled and rain poured
Grey and thick deluge drowning me
Anger and rage pelting in the storm
Blinded, beaten, exhausted no end could I see

You were a ray of light in the eye of the storm
Hope incarnate, love wrapped in a blanket
I loved you even before you were born
Though you hadn’t given me anything yet

I didn’t need anything from you
You were mine and I would give you my love
Brought you forth from the womb
Another perfect gift from above

I’ll hold your hand and run by your side
Kiss your head and stroke your hair
I’ll be your father and lovingly be your guide
You will always be my son, my baby bear
