There have been several write to kick my behind
Stating that I didn’t need to write of my pain
That no matter what someone else chooses to do
I can pick myself up and start once again.
I am thankful to have the friends that do care
That is something I don’t take lightly at all
From words of encouragement and asking to help
There is no longer a need my moving to stall.
So I offer my thanks and the chance to begin
I can only let the storm clouds move past
No reason to linger and wait for a change
It’s time to stop doubting and pouting at last.
So I’ll try to be more upbeat with the words I share
I’ll give back the feelings that brought me here
I know it won’t be perfect as I struggle along
But I will try to be thankful that others do care.
