Comfort, joy and love a true friend gives.
{{size:4}size:4}A True Friend

Comfort is not in the outstretched hand
         Joy not in the smiling faces
         Acceptance not in the company of friends
         And love not in a box.

Rather . . .          Comfort is in the heart that shares your grief
                   Joy in the kind, gentle words spoken
                   Acceptance in the quietness of a friend
                   And love in the time given.

You have shared in my grief, you have spoken gentle, encouraging words. 
Your spirit has brought quietness to my soul and you have unselfishly given your time . . .
THANK YOU for being a true friend!
