Good Days And Bad News

There are good days,

beautiful days, even in the dull days

of winter. There is still sunshine

sparkling on snow and ice;

there is good food to eat

and fine wine to be drunk;

there is the warmth of an open fire;

there is the love of family

and the treasure of friends.

But even on good days, bad news,

an illness found in a good person

is hard to hear.

It is hard to bear, hard to accept

that there is no way to help

except to say the right word

at the right time

and the time is now

and the word is love.
