One of the first people to realize I needed love and friendship.
I remember when as a child I cried,
and you were sure my tears dried.
When I seemed to have no friends,
you were there to make amends
and assure I wasn't left all alone.
I think of you now that I am grown.
If there are truly angels who see,
I am thankful you were there for me.
Kathy, I can never hope to repay
the caring you continue to display.
I remember when as a child I cried,
and you were sure my tears dried.

Books to read and paper and pens,
small treat and other odds and ends
are things I remember you did bring.
Mostly seeing you smile made me a king.
I looked forward to your frequent call,
praying your schedule would stall,
giving more moments of your golden light
which to me always shined so bright.
Kathy, you truly are a savior to me.
I thank God for you on bended knee.

I remember when as a child I cried,
and you were sure my tears dried.
Some would say it was your job,
dismiss my musing with a head bob,
but they didn't see your warm heart,
wisdom and life lessons you did impart.
I am a better man for things you gave.
Over years, these warm memories I save;
a collection of books of outsiders murmurs
and a hopeful thought whatever occurs.
Kathy, I know God must smile upon you,
and clap His hands at the good you still do.
I remember when as a child I cried,
and you were sure my tears dried.
