There's a comforting thought

at the close of the day

When I am weary and lonely and sad

That sort of grips hold of this crusty old heart

And bids it to be merry and glad.

It gets in my soul, and it drives out the blues,

And finally thrills through and through.

It's just a sweet memory and chants the refrain,

"I'm glad I touched shoulders with you."

Did you know you were brave,

did you know you were strong,

Did you know there was one leaning hard?

Did you know that I listened

and waited and prayed?

And was cheered by your simplest word?

Did you know that I longed

for that smile on your face,

For the sound of your voice ringing true,

Did you know I grew stronger and better because

I had merely touched shoulders with you?

I am glad that I live; that I battle I strive

For the place that I know I must fill;

I am thankful for sorrows I'll meet with a grin

What fortune may send good or ill;

I may not have wealth, I may not be great

But I know I shall always be true,

For I have in my life that courage you gave,

When once I touched shoulders with you.
