~I Grieve for You~
My heart grieves for you, my friend,
but for reasons I do not know.
And just as I see the pain in your eyes,
I also see things youíre too afraid to show.

Trying to understand what lies behind those eyes,
my own begin their dampening flow.
As I imagine the pain that you are needing to release,
my feelings of compassion for you continue to grow.

I will not push you, and I definitely wonít pry,
but Iíll be here for you my friend; always close by.
My shoulder will be here should you need a good cry,
and I wonít expect you to tell me the reason why.

Whenever youíre in need, my dear friend,
please know that you can lean on me.
Iíll be a good listener, a giver of hugs,
and whatever else you may need me to be.
Author's Notes:
For a very good friend of mine,
that has always stood by me.
I hope she knows I too stand by her,
and will always be there whenever she needs me.
She only needs to say the word, and I'll be there...
