How can I tell you

There was a time when
you carried my load
how would I ever repay
over that distant and troubled road
I was too weak to say
I have nothing to give you
but, my friendship is yours for life
you smiled at me, told me not to worry
that was yours to do
you quieted me in much of a hurry
you'd be back in a day or two
I waited beside that dusty road
wondered why you'd return to this trouble
then, I saw you coming over the hill
worries floated away like bubbles
There were booms of the canons
explosions from bombs
and through it all you ran
carrying me with a broken leg
if ever there was a man
who deserved something better 
than what I could give
my soul would be yours
my wonderful friend...
How can I tell you or show
my thanks - it will be yours 'til
the end....>
