The Gift of Love - A Collaboration With Poet Chris Smith

There was once a time,
It feels so very long ago
When I believed I could face
Whatever the world threw at me
But of late, I find myself
Feeling rejected and so alone
Trying to seek out a purpose
A reason for me to carry on

The words seem to be endless
To write these pieces from my soul
I realize I am never alone anymore
For there are others who find the way
Writing the words to heal thy self
It makes me feel a little stronger
Because someone understands me
A colleague, a mentor, a friend

It is this place where I find solace
Even as the days, go by in sorrow
In every gesture, I am overwhelmed
With the love bestowed timelessly
A gift I treasure with all my heart
Even though many are miles apart
A godsend in times of this darkness
As the light shines to brighten days

No words shall ever be sufficient
So to express the gratitude I feel
Of all that resides within my soul
Blessed to have such undying support
In dire times of need and desperation
Bringing me new-found perception
In a global bonding of friendship
Transcending in endless devotion
