Love is alive, it makes life sing
Life must be lived from birth 'til dust
Though not always fair remember one thing
I'm here for you and in that you can trust

Love that's denied doesn't have to be hate
You can still count on the love of a friend
True, pain and anger take time to abate
But I'll be here to help your heart mend

I feel the ache of your soul's lost joy
I'd never deny it, it wouldn't be right
False cheerfulness I will not employ
Nor make light of your tortuous plight

Please hear this plea impassioned
In your heart please hear its refrain
Don't give up on your compassion
You'll find you will need it again

Love sometimes seems stupidly inspired
Feeling its anguish is how we learn
When you give up on your desires
Your life takes a downward turn

In a time when I was in torment
You opened your heart to my grief
Kindness was your gracious intent
'Twas friendship that you achieved

I'll not let my thanks to you go unsaid
You have proved love is alive and not dead.

Wise words, caroline ... and ones we could all heed, in our darkest moments ...

"No matter what is wagered --
What is lost --
The kiss of love is always
Worth the cost."

Bravo!

Thank you Caroline for this piece and for your friendship. I would do the same for any of my friends, but you are a rare one indeed.
