I never cared for Eddie.
He didn't interest me.
What my friend Maggie saw in him
Was more than I could see.

I never spoke with Eddie.
He didn't seem too bright,
But now I wish that I could talk
With Eddie all the night.

To everything that he might say,
I'd listen all intent --
The doctors say his chances are
About thirty percent.

Thirty is surely better that ten or twenty, my friend... Be positive - Start planning what you'll say to him...

A poem to heighten awareness, Ted. Simply written, powerful message.
