No one knows why;
we humans like to explain things,
There is no easy solution,
Sometimes people suffer
The suffering may come from an injury,
We can offer support, sympathy, kind word, prayers;
we can send cards, make meals, visit,
phone, e-mail, text, spend a day cleaning their house,
buying their groceries, combing their hair, feeding their cat,
changing their sheets and being a friend
May God bless all those who suffer and may he hold them gently
in the palm of his hand, offering light and comfort during the dark nights and confident support to allay the fears of the day.
May the suffering be short and the light and comfort long.
