What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.

I look up to you

I look up to you
It hurt when I laugh
And my heart is heavy

It sours when I sing out loud and skip lines
I lost composure and be miserable
For a grief soul is never at heart ease
But in the heat of all this: I look up to you

You keep the sun to light my dark
And the star to soft my sleep
You are my helper when days are evil
And my table holds no bread

When my sight fails & my legs could carry me no more
I look up to you when the market desert
The moon refuses to give forth its light;
I look up to you

I’m but a child
Please dear lead me by the hands
For I look up to you; Dear Lord!
