A Friend Is Near - Poem by Sandra Feldman

A good friend,
Can't but put a Smile,
On your face,
When everything around you is falling apart.
And the World is but a Nightmare of disgrace,

God bless good friends,

    The title alone is a poem, and it's an act of faith that always there will be a friend near. I know that feeling when everything seems to be falling apart - but since I've retired I don't encounter it much because I'm not responsible for keeping order in a classroom, in the hallways, in young minds, etc. But your image of the worlds as DISGRACE OF NIGHTMARES is really powerful. Even a quick glance at the day's news confirms it. A headline in today's paper says the body of a missing 6 year-old has been found, obviously a murder victim. How, how can that be? Did Heaven look on and not take his part? as Shakespeare wrote. (Report)Reply

    Ah, yes, nothing like a true friend.
    Enjoyed. Thanks for sharing. And if your friend's name were Sharon, I would say
    Thanks for Sharon.
