October 1987




if there is any comfort

for us alive on earth

       aside our faith in God

it is in love of friends

naught else on earth

       aside our faith in God

can render life a joy

a tender touch

by hand or prayer

support in times of trial

life is full because of these

       aside our faith in God


and you

my treasured friend

I could not ask for more

God has no gift greater

       aside nothing

than love


I love you

I thank God for you

without you

life is but existence

God bless you always

if only for what you are to me



in tangible form
