Friends can help. No man is an Island

Updated on May 18, 2012

friends

Helping hand

If I offered you my hand

would you take it?

Let me lead you through the dark

So you can make it.

If you'll only take my hand............

----------------------------------

If I offer you a bed that

you can lie on,

A place to rest your head

and you can cry on.

If I offer you my hand.......

-------------------------

If you struggle all alone

with help from no-one

Will you make it through the dark

and keep on going?

Or will your pride enforce a fall?

Your shame be seen by all.

Yet, I offer you my hand.

---------------------------------

Do you think you are alone

when you're not perfect?

So give up trying, saying

it's not worth it?

Yet I offer you my hand.

-----------------------------

If I offer you my hand

please come and take it.!

Together ride the storm

and we can make it.

Be as humans ought to be,

Caring, sharing, free.......

If I offer you my hand....

Come walk with me.

    Thank you TD. Nice to see you on my page. Glad you liked the poem. I wouldn´t dare compare my work to ¨footsteps¨

    but I´m happy that you were reminded of that classic.

    Nice poem Dim, and very gracious. This reminds me of the poem "Footsteps". There is always help out there from a true friend.
