At the lowest ebb

of a fast flowing stream,

comes a stab of pain

that makes me want to scream.


Pills and potions

just don’t seem to work

and I’m pushed to the point

of going berserk.


Yet surrounded by love

and dear caring friends,

with genuine offers

of their hands, to lend.


So touching and deep,

to help me they try.

So fragile as to make

a grown man cry.


Never a day goes by

that I don’t give thought

to how fortunate I am

to have so much caring support.


So many loving people,

they help me no end.

So thankful to have such

dear and wonderful friends.
