I’m here

When a missed loved one comes in the door at the end of a long day of work or long years of war. When the roll is called. When someone comes to a meeting late but wanted very much to be on time. When you want to say the least pessimistic and the most essential thing, if a doctor or dear friend asks how you’re doing. When I want to tell you I’m listening for the long run, not going anywhere. When you wonder over the phone if I’ve returned from a journey. When a counselor doesn’t want you to stop spilling, because you’re on an emotional roll. When the room is unbearably dark, and the dog whimpers a little at your bedside to let you know it’s okay to pet him. “Then your light will break forth like the dawn.... You will call, and the Lord will answer. You will cry for help, and the Lord will reply, ‘I am here.’”
