If I, by chance, should meet today
      The boy I was back then
Would he think I was strong and brave
      Or frightened just like him

Would he confide his fears in me
      And tell of what was done
Or would he see me as just some guy
      From whom he'd have to run

Could I defend his innocence
      And protect his gentle soul
Or would my own inadequacies
      Keep me from that goal

I'd like to think given the chance
      I could help him find his way
And with him find a safer place
      If we should meet today

If you were able to meet that boy he would be proud of you for what you've done with your life so far. He would know that you are growing stronger day by day and are someone that he could rely on. You will help him find his way.

No, Steve.

If i were to meet him today he should walk away from me and never speak to me again. If he was smart he would get as much distance between the two of us as possible.

i will never be able to do him any good. i can't help him. i can't help anyone.

My own feeling here is that he would be afraid, just as he would be afraid of any other man. It would be up to you to show him the truth, and I think you would be able to do it. When we are challenged it's amazing the resources we find within us.

Much love,

This land was made for you and me.
