There's nothing I wouldn't do for you.
I watched you take your first breath, I saw the life fill your eyes.
I knew you before you knew me.
I held you before you held me.
But, you changed me, before I changed you.
I would give my last year, my last day, my last hour for you.
I would give you my last breath.
I would walk with you, I would let you run.
I would let you run farther, I would lift you up.
I would raise you on my shoulders, I would raise you as high as I can go.
But you'll climb higher than that.
I would teach you, I would be taught by you.
I would present you at the feet of unworthy kings and magistrates, and they would know to bow low.
I would carry your name on my lips to the farthest corners of the farthest ends of this world. And every other world.
I would keep you forever.
To the right one, I would give you away.
I would hold back Earth and Hell for you.
I would give you all that I have.
I would give you more than I'll ever have.
I would hold your hand.
I would know your heart.
I would cheer for you, I would weep with you.
I would never leave you, I would live for your smile. And your laughter. And your tears and your triumphs.
I would serve you.
I would serve by your side.
I would be a better man for you.
I would be noble, because you are noble.
I would see you with my last waking moment.
I would feel your touch on my hand, when all else has faded to shadow.
I would love you, for longer than life or space or time.
I would be your father.
