Thank You for Your Letters, Cards, and Calls
|Hear me read the poem:
As a .wav file
As an MP3 file
|Thank you for your letters, cards, and calls,|
Heartfelt prayers, and thoughts while I was ill,
A wind that bears us on when courage stalls,
Needed to sustain a weakened will.
Kindness is a balm that works on wounds
Yet unhealed by reasoning alone.
Our suffering abated, life resumes,
Undergirt by strength more than our own.
