    "Portrait of a 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.
    I promise to try to do all of these things
    and be the best friend I can be from now on!
