A hand reached out for grasping,
An ear readied for listening,
An arm stretched out for hugging,
A heart softened for comforting,
A friend prepared for anything.
Sturdy and strong, like a large rock in the tide
Never moving, an anchor to
Those who could be blown away by a soft summer breeze.
A hand stretched out for grasping,
A mouth readied for speaking,
An arm reached out for hugging,
A heart broken for healing,
A friend needed for everything.
Flimsy and weak, like a paper kite in a tornado
Thrashing about, tearing apart
Those who are downtrodden and broken.
A blinding light shines through;
A ray of hope extending to
The hopeless and miserable–
A lifeline guaranteeing a dream come true.
