Courage Is Hope's Last Friend - Poem by Shalom Freedman


Courage is Hope's last friend
Against all the fear and failing that we know
The inevitable declines and losses of Old Age-

Courage alone
Indifferent to odds and probabilities
Scorning terrible certainties
Can lift us from Doom and Depression
To carrying on for those we love
With dignity
Through the difficult end.
