SAY YES TO ME by Oyenwen Odia



It’s my heart’s desire
To be the kind of friend you require
To stand by you when all have fled
With me you’ll never be misled

I’ll speak those gentle words of love
To strengthen you when times are rough
For it breaks my heart, precious one
To see you struggle in so much pain

When your words are inadequate
I ask for the chance to be your advocate
I’ll fight for you, stand at your end
Lifting you up with my own right hand.

I’ll hold you close, holding nothing back
I’ll walk with you, carrying you when your strength is gone
I’ll be there for you, this I promise you
And in return, I ask for only one thing
