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.
