    My sister is in pain and I feel it too
    I hear her calling out for someone to lift up.
    I can't lift you up my sister but I know who can
    I can cry with you I can scream with you
    I am your sister and I will do what I have to do.

    Don't let anyone tell you that you are alone
    As long as I have breath in my body I am here for you
    There are others who care as much for you too
    So don't let me ever hear you say you alone again
    Cause when you think you are alone call on a friend

    Let me tell you a secret that you need to know
    I was there once too and I felt all alone
    I felt nobody cared about me and that my life was null
    but I didn't let that feeling take over me
    I took over it and sang till I was strong

    I sang and sang until I could sing no more
    When the words didn't come I hummed the tune
    I called on the name of my KING my SAVIOR
    I called on JESUS cause when no one else is around
    HE is there to hear my cries and my pleas

    So my sister you know what to do
    you can pick up the phone and call me
    I will listen, I will hear I will all I can do
    But when you need more than I can give
    Call on the LORD and let him rule

    My sister is in pain and I feel it too
    I hear her calling out for someone to lift up.
    I can't lift you up my sister but I know who can
    I can cry with you I can scream with you
    I am your sister and I will do what I have to do.

    Dnommo, I believe He wants that for each of us. It took me a while to figure it out and I am still working on me, or should I say HE is still working on me but I am getting there.

    this made

    me reflect on all the times a special 'sista' has listened, and cried, and prayed for me in my times of need. I pray God that I can be ever available when a sista has need of me.

    Thank you for this!

    Glad you liked it. We all have to be there for each other and I believe if we are the world would be a better place.
