Of Friends

Comfort is not in the outstretched hand

Joy not in the smiling faces

Acceptance not in the company of friends

And love not in a box.

Rather . . .

Comfort is in the heart that shares your grief

Joy in the kind, gentle words spoken

Acceptance in the quietness of a friend

And love in the time given.
