I am here for you
standing at your side
walking WITH you now
as friends without divide

Please dont worry anymore
I am not going to hurt you
please dont fear anymore
I'm with you, not against you

I dont want these simple things
to come between us now
friends or whatever sometimes
never sure just how

You are special to me
most areas understood
I'm hearing what you told me
and with me "its all good"

I cant walk from you knowing
that I didnt try
I give you this, as my showing
that promises dont die

I promised I'd be here for you
unless you told me no
I'm trying not to show my pain
but that too, I said you'd know

I just see a friend who needs
something in her life
you're not quite sure what that should be
acceptance or the "knife"

I'm just trying to help you see
problems dont just go away
it hurts to deal with some sometimes
and some you want to stay

But if you let things pile too high
you'll surely crash and burn
I've been there, so I know these things
and from my mistakes you can learn

I dont want to see you go
I dont easily give up
but if you now have changed your mind
just tell me to shut up

I see "need" and I see pain
but I've left it up to you
you told me not to go before
so thats why I hold true

Everything can be so easy
if we work these few things out
but if you dont want to try
tell me, so I'm not left out

So please just know, I say as a friend
I'm not turning on you
I'm not the enemy, I'm not the foe
I'm walking next to you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. This poem brought tears to my eyes...not just because it was beautifully written, not just because it was beautiful, but because, Brian, I have never had anyone touch my heart the way you just did...through sincere friendship. :~*
