To Find a Friend

Today I saw a friend
someone who is near and dear
suffering in ways
that I simply could not
find a way to just abate

Today I hugged a friend
and cried a tear or three
to try to help to heal
the many wounds
she had received

Tonight I cry
it seems alone
and yet another friend
stops by to let me know
I'm not alone
and love abides

It needs no reason why
nor does love need
for us to try
to reach and find a strength
that simply isn't there

for love abides
within each heart
that dares to open out
just when we need
to find a friend
who understands
our grief . . .
