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 it's 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's 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.
