A Poem From A Friend

March 3, 2008

Here’s a poem one of my closest friends, Ad, made! I thought I’d share.

My Special 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 answers.

I can’t change your past with all it’s heartache and pain,
nor 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 happiness 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 and hurting,
But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces
and put them back in place.

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

A friend that really cares!
All my secrets i can share!
There when i need a hand!
There to understand!When i cry!
he will be by!
If i am away!
he will call me day by day!
If i need him at all!
he’ll be there to stand tall!
Anything i say will be heard!
he will listen word by word!
If I am late!
he will open the gate!

As he looks in my eyes!
The sparkle he realize!
he is the one that cares!
And the one thats there!

That’s a best friend!!

Thanks Ad! 🙂
