Support for a friend

There is loss and there is gain
There is joy and there is pain
In whichever way we turn
Waits the aftermath we earn

Strength is time spent with a friend
Through the hard times that descend
An unseen string connects your heart
Even though you’re miles apart

When in darkness, lost at sea
Blessed am I for I can see
My amazing friend, yes you my friend
The light that you can be

The times we ask where hope has flown
It helps to know you’re not alone
So when you search for hope anew
Then know that I am always here for you

A poem I wrote for friends in hard times, to bring them encouragment and strengthen their spirits when needed.
