THE COMFORTING

I would not have you back on earth
your body racked with pain ...
I know that longing for your mirth ...
your friendship, is in vain!

And yet, when I sit wondering
as night is merged with day ...
It seems your spirit comes to bring ...
the words you cannot say!

    Luv you Margie :D
