A stranger called on me today
she said she'd heard my 'plea',
To have someone to hold me close,
to guide and comfort me.
Her name she didn't let me know,
she said as I 'moved on'
That I would know, 'within'
That's where 'she' had come
She told me:-
"It's alright to cry, to unleash
all your fears,
You cannot banish years of hell,
without releasing tears.
"You have a right to 'find' yourself,
let go of guilt and shame,
To feel the comfort of 'safe'
touch - break free from all your pain."
I know her as my ally now, and
when I cannot cope,
I call the name I found 'within'
- her name I know is
