Be your friend…

I can’t give solutions to all of life’s problems, doubts or fears.
But I can listen to you, and together we will search for answer.

I can’t change your past with all its heartache and pain, or the future with its untold stories.
But I can be there now when you need me to care.

I can’t keep your feet from stumbling.
I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.

Your joys, triumphs, successes and happinesses are not mine.
Yet, I can share in your laughter.

Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge.
I can only support you, encourage you and help you when you ask.

I can’t prevent you from falling away from friendship, from your values, from me.
I can only pray for you, talk to you and wait for you.

I can’t give you boundaries, which I have determined for you.
But I can give you the room to change, room to grow, room to be yourself.

I can’t keep your heart from breaking or hurting.
But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces and put them back in place.

I can’t tell who you are.
I can only love you and be your friend.
