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…. Intentional pain 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… Eileen Manassian Ghali Special thanks to Arthur Vasso for title suggestion 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"

A beautiful poem. we were put on this Earth to helpe one another when one needed help. I have seen the power of God. now that I have been sick. I still can not do a lot of things for myself, but friends always come to help. That is the hand of God working.Thanks for sharing...... Lucilla
