A Silent Partner

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.


Thank you!
