To my friend – 52/100

I hear your pain.

I see your pain.

I almost feel your pain.

I don’t know the answers.

I don’t need to know.

I’m here for you, friend.

I’m here at your sidelines.

I’ll walk alongside you.

I’ll run next to you if you need.

I believe in greater things for you,

as you believe deep down also.

I want the greater, the higher, the deeper,

however much you want for yourself,

however far you want to go for yourself.

And I will want it for you, believe it for you,

even when you don’t.

Even when you can’t.

Even when you don’t want to.

I’m here.

I see you fighting for yourself.

I’m right next to you, friend,

as long as you need,

as long as you want.

Even when you don’t want me next to you,

I’m here.

I’m here because I’m loyal to Truth,

loyal to Goodness,

loyal to Love,

loyal to Life.

I am not great, not greater than you,

not better than you,

not anything more than you.

I’m a human being next to another human being.

That alone qualifies me.

That alone is my birthright.

So, I’m here.

I hear your pain.

I see your pain.

I almost feel your pain.

But I hear more, see more, and feel more than that.

I hear a symphony for you.

I see the greatest masterpiece in you, through you.

I feel the joy and the freedom you’re fighting for.

I’m here

to tell you,

you’re not alone.

You are, by definition of You, by your existence,


You are supported.



Thought of,

cared for,

paid attention to.

Because you are.

You just are.

It’s easy.

You make it easy.

You make me want to be here, friend.

So I am.

For as long as you want,

as long as you need.

Let the fear come,

the anxiety,

the discomfort.

Let them come.

I’m not afraid.

You can be, I’m not.

The symphony is too loud,

the masterpiece too apparent,

too grand,



The feelings are too real.

I’m here.

I’m here,

I’m here, friend.

    Wow, I don’t know if it should sound like a prayer but it does so for me. And than I mean it in a positive way.

      Thank you, it reads and feels like a prayer to me too. I think it was coming from that place. Thanks for your thoughts and response.
