What Friends are For

by Emily Sargent

I cannot ease your hurting heart,
Nor take the pain away.
But let me pray, you take my hand
And lets run today

I'll share your worries when they come,
I'll wipe away the tears.
I'll listen when you need to talk,
and help with the fears.

I'm always here and I will stand by you,
On each mountain you have to climb.
So just take my hand, we'll take on the world,
one problem at a time.
