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.
