Unexpected Mercies

If not for my friends

I would lie down in a puddle.

The tears would stream

Faster than the choking sobs.

Misery would be my constant companion

Instead a smile, a hand and a warm hello.

I am stronger because of them.

I can do more because of them.

I care.

And I know they care too.
