Lift me up, when I am down
Hold me up, while I remember who I am
Not who he said I was

Tell me what a friend I am
Tell me how I make you laugh
Tell me how sometimes you need me there, when you're afraid you can't go on

Help me see again the colors of the sunset
Help me open up my heart and shiver at the vividness of the hues
Stay with me while I wrap myself in the warmth of their beauty

Touch my hand. A loving touch.
A safe touch from another man who wants nothing more than to tell me that he's there for me.
That I am safe when he is there.

Walk with me into my dreams
So frightening at times, that I dare not go alone
But need to see, and can, if you will walk there by my side

Stay with me, when I have become small and frightened, until I fall asleep
Then, cover me with a downy quilt and steal softly away
My child and I will rest easy in the comfort of your strength throughout the night

You are my friend, the one who knows, the one who understands
And I am yours
Together we will heal. Together we will find our way home

I'm healing now, and I wasn't sure I would.

Beautiful, Froggy

I'm healing now, and I wasn't sure I would.

It IS beautiful Froggy and your poem is equally beautiful Bobby.
I'm embraced by your words and it's so comforting.
I appreciate your input into my life.


I'm a freeman now, his authority's dead
no pain monger lies in my comfortable bed!

What a beautiful and comforting thought, I think I will copy and paste this on my desk.

Agreed! \:\)


Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
