Every time I look
Deep into your eyes
I see the pain you carry
And I hear your sorrowful sighs.
I feel the emptiness
Within your longing heart
From the loss you sustained
When your love did depart.
I hear the hollowness
Every time you speak,
And I know that every day
Under your burden you grow weak.
But when your heart grows heavy
And your spirit must take a stand
Remember me and know
That I offer you my hand.
And every time you feel
Your burden is too great to bear
Just call out my name
And your burden I will share.
When darkness seeps into your soul
And threatens to turn your heart to stone
Just think upon our friendship and
Remember, you will never be alone.
This poem is written in dedication to my very best friend Rick. I know how much he has been through in such a short time, and I want him to know that no matter how bad things seem to get, he always has a friend that he can turn to.
