He Said

He said He would be there

if I got ill.

if I were late.

if I let others down.

if I were homesick.

if I forgot about a commitment.

if I did not get everything done.

if I did not look my usual.

if I were having a really tough time.

if I did not know what to do.

if I failed.

I was shocked, scared, surprised about that, because in all of these instances, I am vulnerable. It is not that I am not myself, I am just the myself that I do not usually expose the world to. But He said that even if, He would be there.

And because You said You would be there to extend Your hand, I can get back up, shake off the dust from my clothes, and get back on my path.

You said You would be there. I am not alone.
