    Be thankful...

    Imagine a life, perhaps quite unlike your own
    Where you find yourself once more completely alone
    Assurances to stand by you and not, not go away
    Rattle through your mind for the 200th day

    Time noisy with merriment; now a quiet does follow
    Days filled with a presence; now empty and hollow
    I continue to gesture, but rarely a word
    In response to my offer. Am I not being heard?

    Did I ask for too much for a person to care
    To keep in close contact and continue to share
    My friend's care and compassion, I've no doubt was strong
    So, I'm left to question, "Then, what did I do wrong?"

    Letters written; still no answer...

    Oh, how I hope my dear friend would only see
    That I'm witty, playful, vivacious, carefree
    Understanding, forgiving, kind and, yes, true
    And someone who'd always be thinking of you

    A friendship, so elusive - how could that be?
    Letters written - no answer; but is that the key?
    Perhaps a tacit message, humbling yet painful to see
    That my friend finds something unworthy in me?

    Imagine a life, perhaps completely unlike your own
    Be thankful if there's a familiar voice on the phone

    Imagine a life, perhaps unlike the one you hold dear
    Be thankful if you've a friend who wants to be near

    Imagine a life, perhaps somewhat foreign to you
    Be thankful to hear the words, "I'm thinking of you"

          "Letters written; still no answer..."

          Their loss! If everyone had a heart like Swissnut's we'd never have another war, there'd never be another broken heart.
