When the Bull Strikes

I will always be here,

right by your side

remember I am always near

when the bull bites

don’t hesitate to stay silent,

because when the bull bites

you will sense fright

but remember you are not alone

so please don’t fear

because I am here,

I will protect and defend you no matter what

but don’t make a move or say a peep

because if you speak the bull

will come out and send you to a place

lonely and dark,

where I cannot get to you,

to send you light

the light you need

to stay bright

the light is a

place hopeful and


so please do not say a word

because as long as I am by your side,

you are safe.
