The Pain Of A Friend

I am a burden carrier. I listen.
I cry when my friend cries;
I take the weight from her shoulders.
I feel the pain she feels
And it hurts.

But it also creates peace.
Peace for her to release the pain.
And peace in my heart because
(Though only with words)
I can help.

And I know my friend will be there
To cry when I cry;
To take the weight from my shoulders.
When my turn comes
She will help.

The road of life has burdens.
But friendship shares them,
And once shared, the weight is gone.
The pain remains, but
It doesn't hurt.

Wordower is the most powerful
Wordpower is the most powerful, wonderful, and deep power.

We always act like ` Well, I am sorry I can only listen, and give advice.
But doesn`t a hug and the words `I love you, I am here for you` help us very much? Aren`t they strong
I liked this one very much. We all need a friend, and friendship is very rare now days.
I believe this or these you are there for are truely blessed
