    I may not be able to heal your hurts
    but can always share your pain
    I may not be your source of peace
    but I can always stand with you in the midst of the storm

    I cannot always be the one to dry your tears
    but I can shed them with you
    I may not always know the way
    but I can walk with you into the unknown

    I will not always have advice to give
    but I will listen willingly
    I will not have all the answers
    but I will question everything with you

    I may not always make you smile
    but I'll try to always bring you joy
    You may like black and blue
    but I'll paint the town with you

    You may not always win the race
    but I'll stay to the finish to cheer you on
    My voice may not be the sweetest you'll hear
    but I'll sing to you when you have no music

    I may never be strong enough to move your obstacles
    but can I lend you what strength I have?
    When I'm lacking in eloquenceand don't know what to say
    will you still let me pray with you?

    And when you can no longer be my lover
    can I still call you my friend?

    This is one of the most beautiful poems I've read. I was really touched by this. Emotionally deep Sis.
