I am tired

and I ought to be sleeping
but this song is often on my heart.
Its one of my favorites ever and conveys so much of what I want to say to everyone every day.
Its called "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 don't let show

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

So 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'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on

"For no one can fill those of your needs that you don't let show"
how true are those words in my life? Its a huge struggle for me to tell others things, but I am often reminded by this song that sharing struggles is what we are here to do for each other, to lean on each other when standing alone is impossible.

Im here for you to lean on.
