The shoulders you trust to be strong and sure

Listen but not judge to the words you impart

Understand your burden and see it be theirs

Lessen the stain on an over worked heart

Never a complaint or door found closed

Always on hand regardless of time

As if linked by nature to minds private thoughts

They sense when needed and your presence find

A confidence made will forever be kept

The trust implicit no assurance ever asked

As has always been they always will be

The keeper of secrets both present and past
