" I Can Only.................."

I can only................

I can't give solutions to all of life's problems,
doubts, or fears.
But I can listen to you,
and together we can seek answers.

I can't change your past with all it's heartache
and pain,
nor the future with it's untold stories.
But I can be there when you need me to care.

I can't keep your feet from stumbling.
I can only offer my hand
that you may grasp it and not fall.

Your joys, triumphs, successes,
and happinesses are not mine;
Yet I can share in your laughter and joy.

Your decisions in life are not mine to make,
nor to judge;
I can only support you,
encourage you,
and help you
when you ask.

I can't give you boundaries
which I have determined for you,
But I can give you the room to change,
room to grow,
room to be yourself.

I can't keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
But I can cry with you
and help you pick up the pieces
and put them back in place.

I can't tell you who you are.
I can only love you
and be your friend.
