When Carolyn Sent Me a Christmas Card

I was feelin depressed, sick with the flu Had all that I feared finally come true? All my dreams up in smoke, burnt up and charred When Carolyn sent me a Christmas card Thought “What's the damn use? The Devil's got hold So tired of this game; I think I'll just fold Found the right path but the gate has been barred" When Carolyn sent me a Christmas card Read one line and cracked an overdue smile (I guess I could do at least ONE more mile) Helping me see that it's SIMPLE, not hard When Carolyn sent me a Christmas card... For My friend: Carolyn Devonshire This is a re-write of a poem written on: 12/6/2009...Carolyn was among the first to welcome me to the Soup and yes, she even sent me a Christmas card...
