It's eating Oreo's,
Until Two A.M.
It's learning to dance,
Over and Over again,
I make dinner,
But I don't mind,
Is not exactly rocket science.
It's laughing until you can laugh no more.
Because " God why is this happening again?"
It's always being their to listen,
Even when your not.
It's the way she worries about me,
Even in the midst of her own pain,
It's the way I worry about you,
Hitting my knee's
Because you've suffered so much,
It's phone calls,
Across the county,
And making plans to visit again.
It's the way,
I stay up worrying about you,
Reading old letters,
Watching this friendship grow.

May God lay his healing hand upon you...
