When you fall down and scrape your knee.
When you study all night and score a B.
When you cross the finish line at the big race
and win the medal for first place.
When he asks you out on your first date
When he doesn’t call and makes you wait
and you think just maybe he’s running late
But it turns out he’s really not that great.
When you land that job you’ve dreamed about
and take the chance to finally move out
When you realize that you made a mistake
and this big job wasn’t your big break.
When you meet someone and make a date
and he promises for eternity to never make you wait
and you realize happily that you’re running late
and you know your family is going to be great.
The first person you want to call
To share the news good, bad and all
Is the one who has been there from the start
And the one who will love you whether near or far.
