FRIENDS ARE FOR

FRIENDS ARE FOR

A good friend, Zia and I,

Have situations that ry…

Family care

Oft up in thwe air,

Needing time to get by.

We chose to help each other,

He has both father and mother…

Then on weekends

A sister spends

Time so he can work as he’d druther.

He’s encouraged me with my wife,

Whom I’ll take care of for life…

When one needs time

We work it out fine,

Keeping our boss from strife.

For him, I’m covering where

A half-shift that we share…

More work for me

But he is free

To give full attention elseqwhere.

EXERCISING HER FINGERS

EXERCISING HER FINGERS

My wife keeps her fingers limber

Crocheting blankets that glimmer…

With family love

By a gentle shove,

That baby’s fam’ly will remember.

Not many in her family write,

One or two may stay in sight…

She loves them so much

To stay in touch,

She prays for them all day and night.
