I understand support
from those times it felt like
the ground underneath me wasn’t holding
and no one could hear me scream;
so when I see your outstretched hands,
just know, my brother
I’ll do all I can to pull you through.
I have felt loneliness from
some of the coldest nights ever lived
walking through frozen, snowy path
with fingers finding warmth in jacket pockets;
so when you feel alone,
always remember, my friend
in my heart you have a great company.
I know the feeling of having good news
with nobody to share with.
Ears around pretending to listen
but minds so black you could see the envy;
so when you turn around to share a smile,
you can rest assured
I relish your success like mine.
