A Promise

This is my value as a friend:

To calm and comfort, soothe and mend

To be at your side if you should need,

To heal your heart if it should bleed.

When you cry to wipe your tears

To chase away all of your fears,

To listen long into the night

Until you're sure it's all alright.

To hold your hand when you feel weak

Help you find all that you seek,

And when you feel you can't be strong

To save you the strength to carry on.

To love as long as I shall live

And until I've nothing more to give

To watch over you until you've grown

Enough to face the world alone.

The End
