The only cure for loneliness-
Is not to be alone.
And if a soul is homesick-
The only cure is home.

Only warmth will drive the chill
Bring comfort to a room...
And only love will serve to end
The brokenheartedís gloom.

Only peace can cause a house
To be a place of rest.
And only marriage built on trust
Can stand lifeís strain and stress.

A word of comfortís meaningless
If  you do not speak it-
And hope will die upon the vine
Unless we rise to seek it.

Apathy will drive one mad-
So, pray, do not despair...
For somewhere in this world of ours
There's someone who will care.


 From "The Outlaw Josey Wales": "Dyin' ain't much of a livin' boy".
and..."Aclose second is a poor finish, in a fight to the Death".

Yep!  Sometimes what we are focusing on determines how we see things. We have to get ouside of 'ourselves' and focus on 'others' to know true happiness, I believe. Great poem!

A house is made of brick and stone, but a home is made of love alone!
