She Believes in Me

She believes in me
That I can name the stars
Keep the moon in orbit
And heal all of her scars

She asks the questions
I supply the answers
Or at least come up with
Ideas that satisfy her

She cries when I drop
A harsh word in her ear
Wonders what she has done
For me to create this fear

But she will grab my hand
As her feet traverse the stairs
Jumping off the last
Taking a personal dare

She can see deeper than
Those moments when I fail
She believes in me
And that pierces me like a nail
