A Silent Partner
by David Johnson
You were with me as I cried
And never tried to stem my tears
As something deep within me died
But you were there to calm my fears
You knew that I would laugh once more
With freedom, peace, and new-found dreams
Maybe stronger than before
For you once walked this path, it seems.
Today you know your job is done
And you can go about your way
Another soul is born anew
And found some peace because of you.
*The Silent Partner is a dear (human) friend of David’s who was there at a pivotal, and dark place.
