Whenever...I'll be there

Whenever...I'll be there

A Poem by Rose

This is Cher's birthday tribute to Ruth

Whenever you need; I’ll be there


Whatever you want; I’ll be there


Whenever you call; I’ll be around



Whenever you need me; I’ll be there


I’ll be there whenever you need a quiet voice and a friendly ear


When you need to talk, to gripe, or shed life’s cares


We’ll laugh and we’ll cry; and I’ll dry those tears


I’ll be around when you need a hand, a hug, or just a companion near


I’ll be there to hold you, to guide you and see you through


To lend you my faith when you’ve lost all your own.


You’re my friend, and I love you


So whenever you need me, just call, and I’m there



Whatever you want, just make that call-and I’m there


I’ll be there whenever you want just a little time out: A little pampering, a little fun


We’ll escape the blues and paint the town red


I’ll spoil and indulge you, so wipe off that frown


you’re a diva, you’re a queen, so put your feet up m’lady, right now you’re the star


I’ll paint up your nails before scrubbing your heels


Give you a facial before coiffing your hair; or maybe just a wig will do?


We’ll shop at the mall, then catch a dinner and a movie


We’ll dine on shrimp cocktail and lobster bisque


Or red snapper quaffed down with wine


At our regular spot we’ll have our fill


‘Dessert? Have whatever you like


‘Girlfriend relax, cause tonight; I’m footing the bill’


Or whenever you want, we’ll take lazy strolls


Through the parkways of Brooklyn, or just the Promenade


We’ll amble through gardens or fly us a kite


Or let fly balloons with our hopes soaring high


Or maybe you want just to hold up at home


We’ll order a pizza and stay up the night


Or…pop up the popcorn with homemade ice cream


While watching some chickflick on cable tv


You always cried when Jack kissed Rose


And laughed till you cried at the three buffoons


Or maybe: we’ll just dish out some laughs as we speak in hushed tones


Or I’ll read you a book as you dream in repose


Then I’ll soothe your creased brows as you sleep in my lap



Whenever you call; I’ll be around


I’ll be around whenever you call, at anytime: day or night


Call when it’s snowing, the sky darkening, the world freezing outside


Call when it’s raining, the tears pouring and you’re drowning inside


Call when you’re raging and seething, your banks overflowed


Call when it seems you’re been swept in a flood of your fears


Call when you’re mopey or sad; just lonely or bored


We’ll play backgammon or baccarat; dance the belly dance


Call me when you’re down, I’ll uplift you and sing your praise


Call when you need to touch, when you need my embrace


Call when you’re lost and need a guiding light


Call when in need of strength and hope


Call when you need to hear:‘I’ll be there, my friend’


Just call whenever you need me, and I’ll be right there



Whenever you want; I’ll be there


Whatever you need; I’ll be there


Whenever you call; I’ll be around
