I Can Only Be Your 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
But I can be there now when
you need me to care.
I can't keep your feet from
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
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
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.
