You're only down, 'cause you're not out;
   who could take away the sun?
You might frown, just don't pout;
   your life's not finished just undone.

Don't be afraid of the thread that unravels;
   I think you've been here before.
Don't listen to fools with their babble;
   just live this through and explore.

I'll be over here in the cheering section,
   a better kind of fool for you.
Speaking some words as a joyful injection;
   my joy to be your friend true.

Expect to learn new things of self,
   your handling this like a champ.
Courageous you are, admitting for help;
   you have my approving stamp.

I'm over here, to love and not judge;
   I'm sure you've had your fill.
I won't prod; I dare not begrudge;
   just cups of humor to spill.

Then at the end I'd like to be
   near with a cup of some wine.
We'll look back, maybe we'll see
   as gold from fire you're refined.

So take these words, bathed in love;
   the basket that holds is support.
And when you're ready, fly like a dove,
   to us with writes to cavort.

It occurs to me you might need love
   in the form of a little patience
      to light on you, like a gentle dove,
         for your sorrow as a kind of remittance.

So here I am, with the love of a friend,
   and a willing ear to lend.
I'll give you a laugh; hope I'll send;
   my aim: your heart to mend.
