Always

When you need a shoulder to cry on,
Remember that I have a warm embrace,
Ready to offer comfort.

When you think Iím being too tough,
Remember that which does not kill you
Makes you stronger.

When you need a friend to listen,
Remember that I am here for you,
Always.

When you doubt me,
Remember that I once knelt at your feet,
Washing them in service to you.

When you lose faith in yourself,
Remember that I never did,
Nor ever will.

*******

How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Tara, this piece is so powerful!  I am thinking of a possible title....it may come to me in the middle of the night....and if it comes to me I will send you a quick message via icq.....

I have felt that Spirit with me, many many many times, that wind when I was so hot when my car broke down when I first moved to Phoenix, that hand upon my hammering heart when I visited my friend in the hospital, an hour after her son died, that uplifting when I could not walk....

thank you, dear one, for reminding me

men and women to clarify their Life Purpose and then in turn
live true to their purpose. After 5 years working with the
Severely Mentally Ill in County Mental Health, I gave up the
bureaucracy (and safe, secure blanket) of this environment
to pursue my own purpose and passion.

Tara -

This is a nice piece.

What's wrong with just
~Always~ ... as the title?

Someone is very fortunate to
receive these thoughts from you.

Beautiful Tara. . .

Excellent words. . . very powerful, very heartfelt. . . I know that you would be there for anyone should they need you. . .

I agree with Marge. . . "Always" would be an excellent title. . .

Very good my friend. . .

Thank you all for your comments!  After a long dry spell, they are very appreciated.  I like "Always" as the title, I'm going to change it now.  

This piece is a Christmas present for one of my students.

As I am late in the reponse....ALways is a good title to me as well.

I was thinking maybe of calling it.  "The Truth in Me"  Just my thoughts.

It is very good in any respect
