Tears in my Garden
Did I not help you?
Was I not there when you fell?
I’m crying alone….
My secrets are mine
Do I question you of yours?
The heart is silent….
Do you think I’m made of stone?
Please handle with care….
I love who I am
Why do you want me to change?
My heart is constant…
Unfettered by time
Do you want to live the dream?
Let me take you there…

One good turn deserves another...or so they say. How easily we forget to repay a kindness. I love the song by Michael Bolton...Lean on Me.
LEAN ON ME
WHEN YOUR NOT STRONG
I'LL BE YOUR FRIEND
I'LL HELP YOU CARRY ON
FOR, IT WONT BE LONG TIL IM GONNA NEED
SOMEBODY TO LEAN ON
Ecclesiastes 4:9 - 12
Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
"The third strand being the strongest one...GOD"
