My Hurting Friend




I can feel the fear and it makes me want to fly through the air to reach you

I know you my friend, and it hurts my heart that your world has been turned upside down

I wish to offer you comfort

To hold you while you cry

I will tell you that everything is going to be okay

I don’t always understand the why of our struggles

But I know to the very core of my soul that God understands

And, my dear friend, I also know that your soul is a very good one

You understand this life and you strive every day to learn and to grow

I know that you will grow while you go through this

Know that though we are separated by a very cold ocean

Our hearts are connected by a very warm bond


I have seen you struggle in the past

And I have watched you soar like an eagle to the realm of possibility

I have seen you stretch your wings and face adversity and discomfort with incredible grace

You have a seed of brilliance that continues to grow

And light the path of your existence

The existence of a very true heart

A very dear soul

A very kind man

I am proud of you my friend

And I am always at your side

I will always be your cheerleader!





A dear friend is going through a very hard time.  These words came out on a page to offer him comfort.  I know many people are struggling at this time, it seems there is something in the air.  I hope these words also offer comfort to all of you who are navigating rough seas.  ❤ Lorrie

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.
