Missing part was found tonight,
Amongst children's cries of delight.
Santa brought the greatest gift,
Mended what was not a rift.
Friendship slowed by tragidy,
Time I gave so willingly.
Three years have past, nothing lost.
Friendship worth most any cost.
Coffee shared and time flew by,
Neither really wondered why.
Time not lost, we understand,
True friendship, through time, Always stand.
Give to those who need the space,
What is time in this rat race?
You give to them, just what they need,
True friendship grows fromt he seed.
I have a friend that suffered the greatest tragidy a parent can suffer. She lost her son to SIDS 3 years ago this feb. We were close, had coffe at least once a week. Our children are the same age and in the same classes. She needed time to work through her pain. She pushed everyone away. I gave her what she needed...Space. Tonight she invited me over for coffe and we talked...and talked...and talked. We have found again what was burried beneath pain and time. I thank her and God for this. I have missed her so much over these past 3 years.
