“Just be there”

I came across this poem the other day and identified completely with it so I thought I’d share it with you all. To those that have shared a tremendous loss.

Just Be There

Don’t tell me that you understand. Don’t tell me that you know. Don’t tell me that I will survive, how I will surely grow.

Don’t come at me with answers that can only come from me. Don’t tell me how my grief will pass, that I will soon be free.

Accept me in my ups and downs. I need someone to share. Just hold my hand and let me cry and say, “My friend I care”.
