Email Poem | Today's Poetry



Just lean on me, I will always be there for you
Right or wrong what ever you do, No judgment will I make
My shoulders are strong if your need be to cry
I'm your faithful puppy, tried and true

What right do I have to lean on you
You have always been so tried and true
The truest friend to me since we were kids
I've made such a mess of things in this relationship

When the seas are rough, I will be your port in the storm
If there be the need to confide in me, I'm here
If you find that you're weak, my strength is enough for two
If ever you be lost, a beacon of light I shall be

What you don't realize is that you always have been
And always will be the calming sea for me
When the tides of my life are out of control
In you I have safe refuge for my heart and my soul

If ever you would fall from any height, I will catch you
If your back is up against a wall, Help is but a call
If ever fear would enter your heart and or soul
Remember its our faith, that will empower over all Evil

You have the strength of the ages
For every time I fall, now matter from how high to how low
You always catch me and calm all my fears
I've become dependent on your help regaining peace for my soul

If ever the weight of doubt fills your heart, I will always love you
All my love is just for you, without you my heart would be broken
For you are my world and you are all I have
I couldn't imagine you not being in my life, I couldn't

How can you love me knowing the mistakes I've made?
You've dried my tears; you've held me up so many times
The more obvious thing is I'd be broken without you
Why have I been so blind to what's right before my eyes?

I'm here to help you in any way
I will take a step back, if you need me to do so
If your heart be elsewhere, you only have to say so
That would better than loosing you, Forever a friend I'll be.

Your presence in my life has been such a blessing
But at this moment I have no idea where my heart stands
Though I hear what your heart is saying to mine
All I ask is for a little time for both of us to be sure

Your questions I turn back to you, for I don't think it's all up to me!
