Standing By Me

A Poem By Joanna-J // 1/21/2010

 

The light on the water,

Stars shining in heaven,

The moon in the leaves,

And you’re standing by me.

Standing by me,

You’re standing by me.

By the side of the river

In the midst of the woods,

There at my side,

You’re standing by me.

 

For better or worse,

Through life until death,

To love and to cherish,

To guide and protect.

Was our promise to make,

But never to break,

To keep one another

As a half of our whole.

 

Standing by me,

You’re standing by me.

Come hell or high water,

Always there by my side

You’re standing by me.

A light in my night,

And the shade in my day,

Always and ever,

You’re standing by me.

 

The moon waxes and wanes,

The tide comes and goes,

Rain falls from heaven,

Leaves from the trees,

Warm days are leaving,

But I know you’re…

 

…Standing by me,

You’re standing by me.

Come hell or high water,

Always there by my side

You’re standing by me.

A light in my night,

And the shade in my day,

Always and ever,

You’re standing by me.
