A Riddle

A Poem By Benjamin // 3/5/2014

Where once was one there now are two
Yet never many, always few.
No limit should be placed on me,
Yet always use me sparingly.
All hurts I heal, all wounds I mend.
The loss of me your heart will rend.
All men love me, both fools and wise
for discords all I harmonize.
When swamped by sorrows, sickness, fear,
When down the face drops lonely tear,
'Tis I who bring a helping hand,
Companionship to help you stand.
Such love! Such love! My cry rebounds:
"I know no bounds! I know no bounds!"

This is really well written

This is really well written and I feel like the answer is staring me in the face, but I am so bad at riddles! I've read it lots of times . . . could I at least have a hint? : D

....is it Jesus? But the beginning confuses me; maybe it's not Jesus.

A pen? Pencil? Writing

A pen? Pencil? Writing utensil? haha! Sorry--that's a really off-the-beaten-path answer but that's the first thing that popped into my head.

everything was better when/you would call and I'd be like/yeah babe, no way

Then what is it?? I can't

"Reason itself is a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all." - G. K. Chesterton

So I slept on it...

And it's friendship. Friendship, a really really rare friendship. (Okay, then maybe not...) It has ten letters! How about companionship? That word is in the poem, but then I just realized it doesn't have ten letters. I'll stick with friendship because of the ''where there is one there is now two part". Now I'm really curious on what is the answer.

Whoops! Ignore my comment--I

Whoops! Ignore my comment--I missed your post where you said it had ten letters. :) And I agree with Lucy--makes perfect sense!

Correct! It is friendship.

Correct! It is friendship.
