What I Found
For Laurel & Janine

When I found...
the darkest shadows of my mind
and walked the hardest terrain of my heart,
I felt your fingers on my collar
pulling me back to a truly quiet oasis.

When my spirit dipped into darkness
thoughts wandering in eerie solitude,
I felt your hands upon my shoulders
proving that I didn't walk alone.

When my days became nights
and my nights became stormy,
I felt the warmth of your concern
as it melted the ice from my veins.

When I looked around
I found that little was left,
but the important things still there.
At each side I found…
the dearest of all my friends...
Thank You Both!
