Meant Every Word - Poem by SarahLaney Long

We never doubt each other
and I am glad for that
the years that have passed
just look where we're at

Now I am going to tell you
even if you have heard before
just wait and listen
because there is so much more

You mean everything to me
without you I would die
I believe everything you say
I know you would never tell a lie

If you ever needed me
I would just say come on over
then I would open my door
and lend you my shoulder

Everything I do for you
I know you'd do for me
it just shocks me sometimes
the friends we turned out to be

I would never hurt you
and I will always be near
I would do anything for you
just so you won't shed a tear

I know sometimes life is hard
we'll be together through it all
if you feel you're on shaky ground
I'm here to catch your fall

When I say friends forever
I mean through thick and thin
and when you feel you've been let down
I'm here to lift your chin

Whenever you need to talk
just pick up the phone and call
it doesn't matter what time it is
I'll be there to hear it all

My ears are here to listen
when you feel the need to talk
I would even be happy
if you just wanted to walk

Whenever you're in trouble
you know I have your back
even if we're outnumbered
fear is what I'll lack

If you ever get stranded
I won't be very far
I won't even think twice
I'll just get in my car

I'm here to support you
I hope you understand
when you're taking a big step
I'll gladly hold your hand

If something goes wrong
I'm there to wipe the tears
no matter how long it takes
I can do it for years

Now I don't know about you
we will always talk about the weather
only because in my heart
I see us growing old together

So in case you didn't know
but I'm sure you know you heard
if not then read this poem again
because I meant every word
