A short poem of rhyme, telling someone how much you care – especially when they have lost someone close.

Image via Wikipedia

I’m sorry to hear about your dearly departed,

I know you must be broken hearted.

Your loved one’s life has come to an end,

But some day you’ll get to see them again.

Until that time comes – you’re left hurting in pain,

Tears will fall just like the rain.

Sometimes you wonder – Is there any relief ?

To all the sadness, hurting and grief.

But you have friends who truly do care,

And will keep you in their thoughts and prayers.
