Lately, I've been reading a lot of what seem to be very painful letters, and indeed angry letters. They're not aimed at anyone on the list, but just expressing their despair and frustration and anger at the situations they find themselves in. Many of us can indeed identify with those feelings. I know that I can. Sometimes we feel like we are the only ones in the world who feel the way we do. I hope that this poem speaks to you. :-)

Someone cares

A friendly word can mean so much,
A kindly deed, an encouraging touch.
If I could but reach across the miles,
To lend a hand, or to bring a smile.
Would it lift the spirit, strengthen the heart,
To hear, I love you. though we're far apart?
My friend, these are only simple things,
But there are times when they make us sing.
Sometimes our days with pain are filled,
To just make it through takes all our will.
And so, my friend, I send to you,
These humble words, though they are true.
Words of hope, my thoughts and prayers,
That you would know that someone cares.
