Your Support I Need

The physician offered no hope, But why did you push me away? You only said you couldn’t cope To watch me decline, fade away. As I approach my final day, I long for a place in your heart. I wish some support you’d impart. This path is not one I had planned And it’s not my choice to depart. Please offer me a loving hand.

My heartfelt congratulations on your first place, Carolyn! Your poem has deeply moved me. Sweet and loving Carolyn, I am here to offer you my loving hand....you need hope, love and comfort. Only faith in the Lord Jesus Christ can alleviate your pain and suffering! I am not there yet, but when that day comes, I will refuge in Christ as my Savior! Try to conquer your pain with daily prayers...Jesus himself said, " Keep on praying ." I hope that I can bring you some consolation with my words. Love and hugs, Andrew.

Congrats on this golden medal write, Carolyn.....this story is emotional and unfortunate...how frustrating to have something happen that is out of control and then the mate can't handle it. Best to you. *HOw bout a write regarding the play u were in? I know there is ALWAYS a funny twist to the arts. I used to act in high school and a lil in college. Miss reading your work. Love, Gwendolen

Oh, Carolyn, this honest write well deserved its win-- when we pour our hearts onto the page, magic happens, despite the ink and tears blending. Someone close to me said of his dying mother, he REGRETED seeing her, as his 'memories of her were now ruined'. He disgusts me. But is a relative. I am sorry you are not getting the support you need- hopefully, dear, your tight knit friends here at PS help just a wee bit, but the internet isn'tlife. Praying fleshnblood persons surround you. hugs cyndi
