You feel the pain, you understand,

And hold me close and take my hand,

You say love can conquer all,

You say I should always feel tall,

Therein lies my hope today,

Therein fades the yesterday,

This faith, this belief I had never seen,

Making me something I had never been,

I look in the mirror and I see you…

In everything I feel, everything I do,

Standing beside me, holding my hand,

Passing your strength, a kind word, a hug,

Being my courage when I can’t be strong,

Being my faith when I don’t believe,

And words, a rhyme, and anything I may need,

Being…just being a friend to me.

    1. Thank You Raj πŸ™‚ I hope you find the ‘You’ perfect for you.

  4. Oh. this is so very beautiful. πŸ™‚ Yes, there is a “you” for me too. And more often than not, that you is a friend. At times, that you has been you too, Jai. Compassion, a word of encouragment… all of those little things that matter go a long way, and are more valuable than we realize at times.
