I am lucky to have some really good friends, and this is my thankyou to all of you....now...who's got the glue? *sighs and soft smiles*

when the drum
rolling to crush you
is too large for your hands
to hold back
and you are overwhelmed
your strength is gone
but just before
you crumple
you look to your side
and see another pair of hands
out reached
til the end
and
if you crumple
despite their efforts
they softly help you
pick up the pieces
and hand you the glue

Yep -- I hate it when that happens!  Do you prefer crazy glue? super glue? or elmers?  And -- have an Advil too -- that's gotta hurt!

hoot and SEA thank *you*  

and LR I try to stay away from the crazy glue...am crazy enough lol, super glue might do the trick though   thanks my friend... and lol make that 10 advil and I will take you up on it, be right there,...in my car the drive will be nice   but you know once I get there, I think the smile of a friend would take over the need for the advil *g*

"they softly help you pick up the pieces and hand you the glue"...    Made me smile, this did!  Thank you for that, and what a lovely poem to boot!

 May I never be too busy to help another's load,
Then I'll be drinking from the saucer 'cause my cup has overflowed.

I'm all out of glue sweetheart but I have bandages made of love and they stick to you by way of hugs and when they need to come off you smile...but it only happens when your heart feels the need to dance - once more beneath a rainbow...

 Feed your dreams with love...
