Thoughts and Prayers

What is your response
When a friend has a problem?
Usually it is this that you say-

I''m thinking of you
With my thoughts and prayers.
Is there anything I can do today?

But let''s be truthful
We''re not in their shoes.
It''s just hard to know what to do.

Their adversity is real
And they need some support.
The answer--it just might be--YOU,

To provide a listening ear
And give the most precious thing there is.
It''s called--TIME--and an understanding heart.

So next time you learn
About a friend in need-- Take action--and then do your part!
