My Dearest 'Shrink'

Two years ago I didn't think we would be this close
But as of today I'm able to tell you my deepest woes.
You now sit by my side, listening to my every word
While silently I thank you for coming into dark, lonely world

Goodness knows I try hard to not make you worry
But when I can't take it anymore my tears make everything blurry
So when I sit by your side, my head upon your shoulder and shedding my tears
I realize that it is you who battles my mistakes, terrors, and fears.

I may not be a good friend for looking like I don't care
But if I happen to lose you that would be something I could not bear.
So I ask you, my dearest 'shrink', stay with me for the night can be cold
And know that I will never leave your side even if we're old.

You've said you trust me with your almost every thought
But there are times I see you in your eyes a hidden distraught
We both know I've tried to reach out for you, to be your friend
But it is you that sometimes pushes me away in the very end

You should not ask "who listens to the shrink?"
Or are you that thick that you have to sit down and think?
At least you, my dearest 'shrink', have me as a friend to run to
For shrinks are people too who have deep problems to go through.

Know, my dearest shrink, that I will cry for you only to see you smile
That I will go for you that extra mile.
So when you sit by my side feeling confused and resentful
Be certain that to you and your secrets I will always be faithful

Two years ago I didn't think we would be this close
But as of today we're able to tell eachother, with time, our deepest woes.
So I ask you, my dearest 'shrink', stay with me for the night can be cold
And know that I will never leave your side even if we're old.

--To Joseph who is now dubbed my Shrink and Knight in Shinning Armor
We might joke about that title and that I'm lucky for you not charging me
I think I'm lucky for having a friend that will always listen and that will try almost anything to see me smile
