To trust someone so completely
To start to open up that protective cocoon
To let go just a little
To accept wholeheartedly
To be the supportive one
To stand shoulder to shoulder with
This is what a friend does
This is what a friend is
That barrier between hurt and hope
The arms that wrap you up
The shoulder that is always there
The one you call for a ride
The one you ask for help
The one you look at right in the eyes -
Letting you know you are safe, and you are loved.
