My Sweet Friend

I want to hold you against my chest,

And protect you from all the rest.

Hold you until your teardrops dry,

Make you smile and not cry.

I know that you’ve been hurt so deep,

It hurts me so, to see you weep.

I wish that I could take your pain,

Heal your heart and free your brain.

This whole thing is very rough,

But I know that you can be tough.

Lean on me if you need to,

Until you’re not feeling blue.

I’ll be right here until the end,

I love you lots, my sweet friend.

His Shining Hand

Darkness blotted out my light,

my body gripped with fright.

I had to leave that awful place,

teardrops dripping down my face.

I stumbled and fumbled along the wall,

until I heard the sweetest call.

His shining hand created the spark,

to lead me right out of the dark.

When times get tough, friendship can be,

the rock that supports both you and me.
