Light from a candle.

Let There Be Light

No man is an island
or so some wise man said.
Yet some folks sit in silence
as those words spin their heads.

Everyone needs someone
who understands and knows their needs,
to help them feel that they are not
a thorn among the reeds.

Prize possessions become worthless
if there is no one to care
and hours are just hours
without memories to share.

A card, a call, a photograph,
a place that you have been,
a smile, a kind remembrance
says, I'm glad you are my friend.

Somewhere there is someone
who needs your help to cope.
A candle in the darkness
might light their way to hope.
