I hold you gently
as you weep.
Your tears do softly
wet my cheek.
I cradle you
and sweetly rock.
I listen if
you need to talk.
My finger tips
soft, brush away
all the tears
you've shed today.
Sleep now and dream
of wings of gold,
for someday they'll
be yours to hold.

Marilyn~
This is thoughtful, loving and caring.
That's what friends are for ...
I'm sure he knows he has a friend in you.

I am humbled by your beautiful words, Marilyn.  Well, it's 2:30, maybe I should try to sleep.  Thank you for always being here, even though I don't always know how to let someone in, I know you've tried and that is not lost upon these eyes.  One day, maybe they will dream again.  


Michael

Marg..thanks   You know there are times when I am selfish and miserable as well as thoughtful and caring...lol.

Denise and SeptSong...thankyou.  

Michael...I know you are going through a hard time right now and I just wanted you to know I understand. I have been there and am still going through it. Sometimes we just need arms of a friend to hold us as we dump the pain. This was the best way I could do that for you. Someday the sun will shine for you again. I hope it is soon.  


Tracie and Ruth...thanks so much.  

Sy...a friend never gives up. They just give what they can...even if it is time.

Rainbow...I hope so my friend..I really do hope so.  

James....friends are a comfort and my ear is available to any that need a friend.

A special poem, it made me feel better, and my name isn't even Michael.

Marilyn, this is really touching. I see no reason not to let that other Michael go on believing it's for him

The truest of the true.  That is you Lady Marilyn.  No better person than you in the helping of a friend in need.
