A Hurting Friend


Tell me about your illness
Help me to understand
You are fighting something
That rarely affects a man

He me to see
What the conquences can be
I'll listen very intently
As you explain it all to me

I don't know what to say
Or even what to do
I wouldn't wish this on anyone
But especially not on you

It breaks my heart to see you
With your mind so occupied
Knowing that you're not far away
From a moment when you'll cry

I'm not sure what I can do
Or even what to say
But know that every single night
My prayers will come your way

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
