You Picked Me Up - Poem by David Harris

You picked me up not so long ago
gave me a reason to carry on.
You gave me hope and determination
when I thought all that was gone.

You had the drive I had the ambition
and you urged me every step along the way,
but now I am losing you
and I am so far away.

I know I cannot get back to you
before the Lord takes you away.
I can only sit and worry
at what you are going through.

My heart stretches out across the miles
hoping it could be there
to comfort you as a friend
when you need comfort the most.

Heaven is calling out for you
to take you away from family and friends
and I can only sit here and remember
how you picked me up not so long ago.

Author's Note:

This was written for a good friend who lives in Canada and I went to school with and who is now dying of cancer. She got me back into writing again five years ago.
