Call On Me

When life is spartan and you’re barefoot on a sharp gravel road
Old wounds and new opening gashes on your feet
When hope has flown for more pleasant climates
And dreams are the rags that you clean the flood waters with
When your level is far lower than you thought could ever be
And just a little movement is more than you feel you can muster
Look up from the ground and you will see my hand stretched out
Not here to solve all the problems the world has given you
But I will always be your friend, here to listen and lend a shoulder
Give you great bear hugs and sit silently if that is what you need
Or I’ll try and help you see the silver lining that might be hiding
But always know this dear and precious one of my heart
When you need me just call
Or at least answer the phone when my intuition reaches out
Because my soul knows when yours is hurting
Ours is a special bond that I am most grateful for
