​For My Child

This song is by Christa Wells and appears on the album Feed Your Soul (2013).

I wasn't ready when you came
And now that I feel you pull away
I'm not ready to let you leave so soon
Your shoulders have been growing strong
And the heart within you beats for love
Of God and man, and still I want to hold you

I will stand by in case you need reminding
I'll leave the porch light always on for you
And when you need me, you'll know where to find me
You can't make me love you any less,
Love you anymore than I do

I see you sleeping like a child
But the babe's been gone for a little while
And I'm still standing watch over your dreams
I worry that you'll take the lie
That tastes like truth without the bite
That you'll believe that love is something easy

I will stand by in case you need reminding
I'll leave the porch light always on for you
And when you need me, you'll know where to find me
You can't make me love you any less,
Love you anymore than I do

So run into the lapping waves
I know what is good may not always be safe
And it isn't I who shelters you anyway
You were never mine to keep,
But to carry for a few days
I see you sleeping like a child
But the babe's been gone for a little while
And I'm still standing watch over your dreams
