"You'll learn from them - if you want to. Just as someday, someone will learn something from you. It's a beautiful, reciprocal arrangement. And it isn't education. It's history. It's poetry." ~As said by Mr. Antolini, Catcher in the Rye, JD Salinger


I want to know you, stranger
Your fears, your loves, your thoughts
Will you show me what dwells in your mind?
Or is it locked away forever?

Tell me what it means to be you
I’m here to listen, I’m here to care
I promise you’ll feel better
When everything’s finally let out

I want to know you, stranger
Your dreams, your hopes, your story
Can you show me what lives in your heart?
Will you gift me a piece of yourself?

I won’t judge, and I won’t speak
Just pour your heart out now
I won’t lie, it hurts, it aches
But we cannot heal without pain

I want to help, I want to care
You’re alone, and you want out
It’s amazing what can happen
When you allow others in

I want to know you, friend
I’m forever here for you
I’d face the unknown for you
And I’ll protect your secret heart

You’re a name among thousands
Just another distant face
And yet you’re not the only one
To be lonely in this place

I want to know you, friend
Even if you give it not a thought
It will kill you, you know
If you don’t care, no one else will
You need to tell someone
That’s the reason I’m here
Let me be your shoulder to cry on
Let me comfort you

I’m here for you
I’ve always been here caring
I hurt for you, I bleed for you
God knows I feel your pain

You let me in, you let me care
Now neither of us exists alone
I’ll always care for you
Because you let me in


The author's comments:
This was inspired by a conversation I had with a friend one night about her problems in the past. She told me that even before we knew each other well, she knew that I was always there for her, and that I always cared.
