I’ll be there for you

When spring spreads loveliness all around,
And the air smells sweet,
You’ll find many people
To hold your hand,
But when the sky is overcast,
Or when the yellowed leaves
Tear off from the trees,
I’ll be there for you.

When an empty feeling
Envelopes your soul,
When you start questioning
Your own identity,
When your mind deserts you
And you don’t know
What next to do,
I’ll be there for you.

When you feel as light
As a gas balloon
In the air,
With no cares in the world,
When your heart feels heavy
And it aches,
When someone has hurt you badly,
I’ll be there for you.

When you feel tears
Welling up
In your eyes,
Without your knowing so,
When you miss that
Special someone,
And can’t tell anybody,
I’ll be there for you.

When you want someone
To pillow fight with,
When you want
Someone’s shoulder to lean on,
When you want to go
For a long walk
Under the clear sky,
I’ll be there for you.

When you feel
Like a king,
When you feel
The world is at your feet,
When you lose everyone
And have only yourself
Whom you can rely on,
I’ll be there for you.

PS: This is something I wrote when I was in college….

    “But when the sky is overcast,
    Or when the yellowed leaves
    Tear off from the trees,
    I’ll be there for you.”

    Loved these lines πŸ™‚

    This poem and my poem “Greed” are like chalk and cheese, aren’t they ? πŸ˜›

    Bravo! πŸ™‚

    Reminds me of the Rembrandts’ song (title song of FRIENDS) –

    So no one told you life was gonna be this way
    Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s DOA
    It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear
    And it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month or even your year

    But..

    I’ll be there for you
    When the rain starts to pour
    I’ll be there for you
    Like I’ve been there before!
    I’ll be there for you
    Like you’re there for me too!

    priya,

    thanks:-)
