I can tell by that look friend, that we need to talk.
So come take my hand and let's go for a walk.
See I'm not like the others -I won't shy away.
Because I want to hear what you've got to say.
Your child has died and you need to be heard.
But they don't want to hear a single word.
They say your child's with God ,so be strong.
They say all the "right" things that somehow seem wrong.
I'll walk in your shoes for more than a mile.
I'll wait while you cry and be glad if you smile.
I won't criticize you or judge you or scorn.
I'll just stay and listen 'til night turns to morn.
Yes, the journey is hard and unbearably long.
And I know that you think that you're not quite that strong.
So just take my hand 'cause I've got time to spare.
And I know how it hurts, friend, for I have been there.
See, I owe a debt you can help me repay.
For not so long ago, I was helped the same way.
And I stumbled and fell through a world so unreal.
So believe when I say that I know how you feel.
I don't look for praise or financial gain.
And I'm sure not the kind who gets joy out of pain.
I'm just a strong shoulder who'll be here 'til the end.
I'll be your Compassionate Friend !!!
George's Guardian's of Grace Projects
Stocking project is now in full force collecting donations. We have a list of the items we can use. You can also choose to sponsor a stocking in memory or honor of someone else. We will include a paragraph or two in the cards we place in the stockings to let the recipient know about the person that means so much to you. Our paypal account is posted on this page and ready to take donations. Email us for a list of items needed or with any questions or information you would like included on a sponsored stocking/donation.
