My Friend My Rock



You are my rock.

The strength I need when
people I meet bring me to my knees
I cannot hitch myself back up
and anxiety feeds well upon
my fears.

You are my one sane moment in time.

My truest friend indeed who’s
there whenever pity’s tears
soak my pillows with the
sorrows of dreaded tomorrows
and thoughts of pains yet
to come.

You are my sanctuary.

My island in life’s
roughest sea.

My harbour lies in the
strength of your loving arms and
my heart dwells inside the
safety of your canon

You are my soft rain fall.
The one who cools my
heated mind.

The smoothness over the
cracked paving slabs of
my life

And, the promised breath
of spring-time after winter’s
bitter strife.

Where would I be without
your love…

I’ll never know….

Because you love me
like a rock and
will never let me

My candle burns at both ends
because you and I
…are friends.
