Happy New Year!

Houston area radio host, Kevin Kline, recently ran 481 miles across the state of Texas to raise money and support Texas Children's Hospital and childhood cancer. His inspiration was a young girl named Chelsey who called him "her radio nerd." Chelsey passed away, but her legacy lives on through Kline's foundation and efforts. You may visit his foundation in the link below the poem. I wrote this poem to honor his giving spirit.


Love is a beautiful, flowering vine
A gift for which every heart strives
Friendship, a sign of His glory divine
Enriching and touching our lives
The love of a friend never fades away
It spans this era and beyond
Even if departed, sweet memories shall stay
Maintaining friendship’s lasting bond
Some friendships are simply more special, indeed
Their roots implant deep in the soul
Their views change our lives, by conviction or creed
Their light guides us toward every goal
True blessings are they, angels sent forth to earth
To extend His sure wisdom and trust
Through their eyes, we see a world of strength and worth
Where faith and empathy are just

A just world of love and of friendship’s embrace
Resides in your spirit of giving
God’s angel children are your reasons to race
Their memories, your purpose for living
You have found that friendship, most special of all
Love’s eternal gift lies within
Chelsey’s legacy shall e’ermore stand tall
As long as you’re racing to win

Wow, Jill, this is so beautiful and heartfelt, I really felt this one, especially about my brother who passed from a heart attack nearly a year ago. This is amazing work.

Great cause, but adults need help too, not just the kids! There are plenty of struggling/sick adults who could use a helping hand!

NOT meanting to sound cynical, but that's just my opinion. Still, a good write, Jill; well done!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Burleson, Karen Lynn.
