Around the bend, up a tiny knoll
A lonely one walks, bewildered
And uncertain of their goal

Can you walk a little faster
Offer shaking of their hand?
Mitigating hardship,
Say you understand?

When parting at the next bend
They’ll feel secure and brave
Walking with firmer, lighter step
For the friendship that you gave.

They don’t have to know, you see
That you were bewildered too
And walking with them, side by side
Made a brighter day for you.
