When I’m not there

When I’m not there

It’s not the badge that you wear,
Nor the scroll that you hold,
It’s calling him a star,
It’s who you are.
It’s the time that you give,
The love that you bring,
The heart that you show.

It’s every day that you’re there,
It’s his eyes at your name,
It’s the void that you fill,
When I’m not there.
