JoJo Bean, Dodgy Dave and Meggie Gultiano

When The Darkness Calls

You stand like a rock
or a tall oak tree
just behind me
To catch me if I fall
or need someone to lean on
when the darkness calls

You have been my help
in times of need
A wonderful feeling
it will always be
When darkness calls
you stand by me

Your roots run deep
and on your strength I rely
You quiet me so I can sleep
Harbored within these walls
the need of someone
when the darkness calls

    This poem clearly speaks of protection and comfort and clearly defines what real friendship is all about. A true friend is always there when darkness calls. A truly excellent write my friends, I love it. A big (10) from me.
