Listen

A friend drops by needing a friend
Will you ride with me
Just to listen, be heard
Just for the company
The fact that you are friends
How many times do we say no
How many times are we too busy
How much does it cost us
To take the time
To value another
To stay in the shadows
And listen to all that must pour out
We all have our times, our days of doubts
Where we need a friend to come along
Walk side by side, knowing then we
Are not alone on the journey
In our fears and doubts
And insecurities
We have a friend
Who walks with us,
Holds our hand
Prays for us
Which makes all the difference
