|Newsletters: Team Inspire|
I’m making friends here on Inspire:
The kind of friends who don’t require
that I smile and be at my best,
Who don’t consider me a pest
when I’m down or need to vent,
Who’ve words of support so gladly sent.
These are people I’ve never met;
They’re only names to me and yet
I feel a closeness to them all
And I never fail to heed their call
when they reach out, too sick to cope
with their lives, and I send them hope
in the form of words and offered prayers.
Here there’s no need to put on airs
and pretend to be stronger than we are.
This is our community and we come from afar
to offer support, encouragement, advice;
Opportunity each day to do something nice.
If I can share in another’s pain,
I find that I’m the one to gain.
So here’s to those who run this site!
I thank you, with all my might.
