When times are bad, Pepper, Dear,
When darkness hides the light,
Just reach out your hand, Sweetheart,
I'm here.

Though I'm far away from you,
And can't get up and walk,
Hold out your hand and just believe -
I'm here.

While life is mine, and strength shall last,
I'l try to make you feel
That in your darkest hour of need,
I'm here.

And when I'm gone and am no more,
And can't call you, Sweetheart,
To say, "Come, smile, my Pepper dear,
I'm here."

Then I shall search some other path
To cross the void, to come to you,
And find a way to let you know -
I'm here.

On summer's day, when all is calm,
When nothing's stirring in the air,
A gentle breeze falls on your cheek,
I'm here.

In the darkness, as you dream,
You feel soft arms enfold you, Dear,
Don't be alarmed, it's only me,
I'm here.

And, so, I hope to be near you,
Until you cross that void,
I'll be there, calling, "Pepper, Dear,
I'm here!"
