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. <3 Lorrie

Hi Barbara! Thank you so much for your kindness. I am very grateful for the support you show to me. I hope all is super in your world <3 May this week find you embraced in love! 🙂
Your poem is beautiful, your friend i very lucky to have you as his friend.
Thank you so much for your very kind words 🙂 We are so lucky to have each other. The true purpose in life is to touch other’s hearts and in return your heart is touched in such a beautiful way! Thank you so much for commenting!
You are very wise and very sweet.
(My head won’t fit through the door!) 🙂
beautiful and powerful Lorrie. I felt truth tingles reading this post. I’m sorry for your friend’s challenges, but heartened by your words and knowing that they have your love and support. Having friends to lean on is a great blessing.
Thanks for supporting and uplifting me and so many others Lorrie! 🙂 <3
Hi Brad! Thank you SO MUCH!! You have been such a good friend to me…I can only hope that I have been there for you as you always offer me such beautiful support and comfort!! I know my friend will be okay…he knows it too 🙂 It is the hard times in life, Brad, that determine the kind of person we will be…we have a choice in how we decide to handle ourselves in those times.
On a different note…have I told you lately how much I love your energy??? It is noticeably different! <3 <3
Thank you and you’re welcome Lorrie.
Your comments touched me deeply. Especially the energy part. Several people have told me similar lately. I do feel that I’ve opened up to more love, confidence and a growing trust, even though none of my circumstances have shifted.
Yes, you have and are a good friend to me. I too feel loved and supported by your words and presence in my life. I agree about the challenges. Maybe that’s the shift for me. Previously I would have begrudgingly agreed, but not felt it. Now I embrace the challenges as an opportunity to choose, center, go deeper into the best of me and my spirit.
Just as I choose to be an uplifter of others.
Blessings my dear friend. <3
I have tears in my eyes…I am so touched by your words…by your shift!!! I promise you that good things are in store for you. You now believe it too…don’t you? That is the key to life…it is changing the way we think about the things in our life. I don’t remember who said it to give them credit but a wonderful quote that I love is:
“When we change the way we look at things
the things we look at change!”
It is a beautiful thing, Brad. I’m so happy for you. And when you heal….you DO help others to heal. And you are always a beautiful source of support and you uplift others…ALWAYS!!!
Much love to you Brad…stay in your light!! <3 <3
Thanks again Lorrie. <3
We can all hold a space of light and love for those who are struggling or feeling lost. This is a beautiful act of kindness for your friend Lorrie and it is how we can support and love one another.
Hi Karen…Thank you so much for commenting here. I love the way you see the world. You have so much compassion for our fellow humans and your kindness shows through your words. I agree with you…there are so many who need comforting at this time…so many going through struggles. We have such a wonderful community here…so many people willing to give of themselves…I am so grateful!! <3
Beautiful poem, your friend is lucky to have someone like you backing him. I hope that whatever troubles he is having they will soon be resolved.
Thank you so much…I know that with the good wishes of wonderful people like you he will see a resolution to his problems soon! And thank you for your kind words!! <3 I haven't been over to your site in a while…I am on my way! 🙂
No worries hon, its been a long time since I visited all my WordPress friends to.
This was excellent.
Thank you!! I’m so happy you stopped by and commented. Hope all is super great in your world!
May your friend be well and happy Lorrie; and thank you for broadcasting your well-wishing words of compassion more widely.
P.S. I still have that recurrent issue with loading your site – perhaps it is just me experiencing it? No matter.
Hariod…I was just writing a response to one of your posts!! 🙂 Thank you for your well wishes…I do believe that has power in the energetic field! And all I can say is a giant thank you for sticking with me and being patient while my site apparently treats you poorly!! I am grateful for our connection and I hope that this glitch ends soon! <3
The glitch really is not a big deal for me in the least Lorrie; I only thought I should alert you to it in case it was happening more generally. I cannot fathom why it is that it only happens here – maybe the shocking pink borders of your pages cause my PC to freeze in startled amazement! H <3
I love synchronicity 🙂 and yes…it must be the shocking pink 😉 <3
A friend loves at all times. Proverbs 17:17. Its words like yours that provide the warm blanket to the chilling soul.
Oh…how I love your words!! Thank you Thank you!! It truly warmed my heart <3 I hope all is beautiful in your world!
This is so comforting and beautiful Lorrie! 🙂 Poured out of your beautiful and compassionate heart <3 Your friend is blessed to have you <3
Hi Trini!! Thank you so much for you beautiful words 🙂 My friend gives much to me and I am so lucky to have him in my life! Just like I am so lucky to have you beautiful soul sister!! I hope your writer’s conference was wonderful!! Much love!! <3 <3 <3
It was lovely! 🙂 I will do a post about it when I return to India 🙂 Lots and lots of Love to you too!!! 🙂 <3
This is truly a treasure of hope and encouragement, and I’m sure your French devotee will love it and be encouraged by it.
You have a grand heart, Lorrie. Never let anyone make you feel less than you are ever again! Hugs and love, N <3 <3 <3
Oh Natalie. ..you are so very wise and so very correct!! Thank you for your ever encouraging words…words that have impacted my heart! It seems I have allowed some rather negative energy to invade my sanctuary. I am very aware of it now and taking the appropriate steps to deal with it! I appreciate your support more than I can tell you! And I think my devotee understands what I meant!! 😉 <3 <3
I’m sure he did too! Scripture tells us, Lorrie, that we have to guard our hearts, and so you were very wise to rid yourself of the negative energy. I have a dear, dear friend who tends to be very negative and so I have to limit how much time I spend with her because I find that her negativity begins to drag me down into darkness. Now that we’re older she’s not as negative as she once was, but it’s still enough that I have to be diligent in keep a safe distance at times. I went through a very cynical period in my life while my faith journey was derailed, and so I have to be careful not to let that bent towards cynicism
get a hold of me again. I pray you and your “French devotee” have a much better week. Since I know not the details or source of his fears, I can’t address them, so I’m glad that you know and can and will. Love and hugs, N 🙂 <3
Yes! I understand what you mean Natalie. I am very sensitive to energies…so much so that at times I can’t tell whose energy is impacting me. It was very confusing to me for years…but I am learning to protect myself better.
I had a major aha! moment today which brings me so much joy!! I have the awareness to “right” something and now I can get busy doing the work! I am so very grateful for the lessons…and I have complete and total faith that I am being divinely led!! It is a beautiful understanding!
Thank you so much for your incredible support. ..and you do know that I will help our friend any way that I can!!! <3 <3 <3
Let me stand beside you Lorrie and share in this message from the heart.
There never seems to be enough in this world.
And your words bring solice, comfort and inspiration.
