I'll be here

By Hope in despair

When you've lost everything you hold dear, and everything falls, will I just go about my business, and say " you'll be fine"? 
No, my brother,
No my sister,

I will stop my busyness, and attend something much more important: YOU.
I'll be here, I'll be here.

When your grief is so deep, that you vomit and cry, will I give you empty words and cliche phrases?
No, my brother,
No my sister,

I will sit in the floor in vomit and tears with you, and mourn with my precious friend  in pain,
I'll be here, I'll be here.

Will I abandon you in the most difficult time of your life, and leave you to walk the path alone, because  your emotions don't line up with my belief system and the half hearted answers I give you I don't believe myself?
 No, my brother, 
No, my sister

I don't have all the answers, and no words that will be enough for the pain you're going through, but I know this:
I'll be here, I'll be here.

    I'm still here to friend! However electronic problems and a 60 hour work week kept me from being on here like I want to. Thank you!

    Yes, and most of the time people don't care for advice, they just want someone to actually listen. Also, this seems to me like a beautiful description of a deep, caring friendship, which I long for..
