Strength

Let me be your comfort
Let me be your friend
Let your worries flow through me
Let your troubles end;
Let me give you sympathy
Let me take your hand
Let me give you all I have
Let me help you stand;
Let my spirit touch you
Let my strength be yours
Let me guide you through the maze
Let me fight your wars;
Let me give you time to dream
Let me give you peace
Let me kiss away your tears
Let your worries cease;
If you let me love you
If you let me care
If you let me be your strength
You know that I'll be there.

....then let I shall.
Done with great skill Linda. The repeated intro for each line runs the risk or boredom, but you overcome it completely. The rhythms and rhymes, including the half rhyme of yours with wars especially, give a flow and a gentle lilt that carry the reader from beginning to end with comfort and awareness of the very dignified and virtuous content. Clever. Very fine writing! xxx jim

This is a perfect recipe of loving Linda, it brought a tear, because you describe exactly what loving someone allows us to give so easily. All of it, every last word is true. We give each other Strength indeed. Half smiling at you, Tai
