lean on me | song*ography ...

"Lean On Me" 
Sometimes in our lives
We all have pain,
we all have sorrow
But if we are wise
 We know that there's always tomorrow
 Lean on me when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend,
I'll help you carry on
 For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need somebody to lean on

Please, swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you won't let show
You just call on me, brother,
when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
 I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

 Lean on me when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend,
I'll help you carry on
 For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need somebody to lean on
 You just call on me, brother,
when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

 If there is a load
You have to bear
that you can't carry
 I'm right up the road,
 I'll share your load
 If you just call me

~ Bill Withers ~




Hardship has no boundaries;
it can hit any race,
gender, age,
or community.

lean on me!

  8. Awww. Lovely heart touching response. This is perfect. I have a friend who does "street ministry" once every week. She is an interfaith chaplain and loves to interact with the homeless. She reminds me often that it can happen to anyone-we are all one tragic event away. Wonderful entry today.

  13. I am wondering if he sells the little flowers. Also, I notice that he has reusable plastic bags. I suppose those who live on our streets are very familiar with our trash issues.
