So, I need to know that You are in this.
We need ya…

Because it’s too much for me to do.
It’s far more than we can handle.
But we need it handled.
Please, Friend,
be here.
Let me know you’re in this.
Remind that you’re with us.
Heal and fix and drive out and pull close and spring forth and hold on and topple anew.
And also, just be here.
We need ya….
