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...
