I'll Be There- For Bridge Contest

When you've suffered great loss And sorrow's span seems too far to cross I'll be there with a hand to lend Your broken heart I will mend When you're drowning in your tears And you think that no one cares I'll be your friend, with love to send Your broken heart I will mend I'll be your bridge over waters deep And if your journey gets too steep A helping hand I will extend Your broken heart I will mend When you're feeling lonely and sad And in depression you're clad I'll be there to be your friend Your broken heart, I will mend -- 10/8/17
