To A Friend

If I could ease your pain, I would;
Id take away the hurt if I could.
But I can only offer words of hope;
I pray that they will help you cope.

Sometimes life is a bitter cup,
But hang in there and don't give up.
I know that God will see you through;
In time you'll learn that this is true.

Therefore, my friend, just pray and wait;
He'll answer, whether soon or late.
Remember, till the very end,
I'll always be your caring friend.

If you should need me, night or day,
Just call; I won't be far away.
