My Friends

Amidst the chaos of pain and travails,
tears of anguish, feelings that
one is alone, come the songs from
the choir of caring voices, the hand
of a stranger who lends it to raise
you up and shares with you the little
she has but in sharing, it is a lot

For those of you who have lost so much
by the angry hand of Nature,
unforgiving storm of life, when in the morning
there’s smiles of love, in the evening
strangled with distraught
you’re in the hearts of many
by those who have not much to give
and those who do cannot replace
your loss

I know there are those who will read this
who will be disdainful of just words
in the face of the reality of death,
the devastation of life’s labors lost
I beg for your patience that in
these words sometimes they're heard
by those who can assist with resources
and this might just be the
smallest of emotional impetus for money
needed and their hands

To those of you who hear my voice
and welcome the little that I offer
my thoughts of good intentions and
the slightest relief that may come from
our hearts and prayers being with you,
that soon you will be in the comfort
of your home and in the embraces
of your love ones

Con abierto brazos
Y Corazon
