Sweet friend while you are sad I won’t offer platitudes or
empty words like people say when they don’t know what to say!
I offer you silence in respect of your silent sadness!
I offer up prayers for perseverance
I offer you my ear if you need me to hear
I offer you my shoulder should you need
I offer you my strength, my faith
I gladly share it with you
Cause sweet friend that’s what friends do when
they have no words and try pitifully like now to express it.
Now I shall be silent too!
