I heard this today. And it seemed to fit what I've been feeling:
I don't want you to walk in front of me so I have to follow;
Or behind me so I can't share the journey with you;
I need you to walk along side me and hold my hand so we can travel the road together.
If you have a friend that does this with you, they are worth their weight in gold. Friendship never really can be over or underestimated.
