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, triumps, success, 
and happiness 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.
