You lift me up, when I cannot stand alone
You are there to offer the hand that knows
I am there for you with the same hand
If you need a lift to stand

Together we can walk the road as one
One falls and another reaches to hold him
And it passes among us all, up and down the line
None of us always strong, but accepting the hand

Sometimes you are strong when I feel defeat
And I will be strong when you are not
It is a fellowship of brothers together on this road
And we will not let one of our own fall alone

You don't have to be alone, just call out my name
My name is brother, and I am there for you
Your name, the same, and there for me
No longer alone, we lift each other.

You lift me up

"I finally have my heart!"

To the perps: Don't worry about me coming after you. But you damn well better watch out for God! "Vengeance is mine", saith the Lord

I always tell new guys that recovery isn't so much a goal as a path. In this poem you catch what that means so well! Thanks for sharing this with us.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
