To a Special Friend

Look for that Time Tunnel
and travel into the past
change events there
before you come back

Life is given to us
devoid of meaning
with no significance
so we create it ourselves

Fill this neutral life
with happy memories -
blot out the sad ones
forget the bad ones

Look to the power of your mind
the clarity, power and strength
to choose the interpretation
that serves in creating happiness

Reflect upon wonders unknown
the marvels and mystery
of magical tales – such as
how Hope was saved as a gift

To man when all ills,
pain and suffering escaped
from Pandora’s box -
or take up a cause

Fight like Don Quixote
against windmills of woe -
read a favourite book
put your mind in a wonderful place

Reflect upon friendship
listen to special music:
beware of Debussy
Chopin and Mozart are great

And let me know
as soon as you come back
from time travelling
how you are doing

I’m also fretting and suffering
wasting precious time
on wasteful thoughts of
if only – but let’s make a deal

As soon as we are feeling better
we’ll write each other a letter
explaining the method of escape
that freed us from pain -

And created happiness!
