There Are Times~(To Michelle M)

There Are Times

There are times when the sky
Seems so dark and cold
Although the sun is shining
Just as bright as pure gold

There are times at the end
Of a hard and weary day
You wish all of your problems
Would completely fade away

There are times when your life
Can be filled with misery
And you canít find a single soul
With any common decency

The are times when it seems
It all becomes too much
Somedays we all feel like
We need some sort of crutch

Yet we each have the strength
If we find the will to use it
Planted in your heart and soul
If you donít waste or abuse it

See Iím not the smartest man
Iíve often fell upon my face
But Iíd give up all the strength Iíve left
If it helped you find your place

Author's Notes:

My Dear Friends~
As many of you know, I have had some struggles lately and the family
that adopted me here immediately came to my side with their thoughts
and prayers letting me know I am never alone-
For this I am†forever grateful and You've really helped me see the light-
But now I must ask another favor from you-
Having been around the block more than a couple times, I will get past
this as I have situations I've created for myself before-
I would like to ask you to reassure another one of our wonderful family
members here that they are never alone-
Michelle Morris has really been going through a rough period and
right now she needs a few x-tra prayers to help guide her past the
storms that life can sometimes bring-
She is not only an amazing person who at an early age endured more
than some of us will endure in a lifetime, but she has also constantly tried
to offer strength to many others who have been in her shoes-
This is the kind of thing that always made this site the best in the world-
The generosity and and absolute†unity of all of its members~
Best Wishes~

Your compassion and empathy for others is alway so apparent in your work, comments and the way you reach out to others. I am sure Michelle is indeed thankful to have a friend like you in her life. i thank you for the words of encouragement you have given to me also in regards to Elizabeth. The poem is beautifully written and conveys your amazing heart. Where we would be in this sad world without people like yourself that care and know so closely the struggles this life can bring. Peace, strength and grace for each day to you and Michelle.

Be strong and live with hope. All my prayers for you both.

~Love Cindy

Great write and evident it is truly heart felt. 'Chelle is truly a very special person with so much talent. It is so obvious that not only does she have a lot of love and support on this site but she has special knack for reaching out and touching the heart of everyone here. Great Job!!

Oh James...I sure that Michelle would be ever so comforted by your encouraging and caring words. Indeed your concern for your fellowman shine through in this write. Bravo! (I would remember her in my prayers)

As always, James...reaching out and bringing healing and help to those around you :)
This is a beautiful write, and I can see from her response that you've touched her deeply with this.
My hugs and prayers will go to her...Like all of us, she needs the support of family, and that's what we are all here for.
Hugs to you, and to her...

Once again James you are the light that guides us all and brings hope with it. I know Michelle well as many people know and I know no matter how bad things get she'll battle through because she is a born fighter. She knows she has a lot of support on this site and I know she'll continue to kick as for a long long time

Awesome poem my friend
