To My Dearest Dani:

I will reach out my hand to you
and brush the worry lines away.
I will reach out my heart to you,
to bid you laugh with me today,
For hurts will come to weigh us down,
and life sometimes prove untrue.
But I would like to understand
and walk a little way with you.

I will reach out and touch your eyes,
to see the sun behind the clouds.
I will reach out and heal your heart,
to help you walk with head unbowed.
I'll help you look with eyes of faith,
to see the light you have within.
And understand the greater joy,
of walking hand in hand with Him.

I will reach out and touch your soul.
as Jesus did when he was here.
I will walk gently by your side,
and help you feel his presence near.
For when we love enough to care
and take the time to touch a soul,
Then we can reach the one in need,
and make a troubled spirit whole.

Yet, I know that I'm far from perfect to support you through your time of need, however I'm going to work like h_ll to get there.

From your loving, Steve
