The depth of despair
What causes someone to sink so low|
and lets an upright spirit to kneel and bow
to the pressures they are unable to undo,
Neither can reverse this malady nor subdue?
Letís not someone retreat in the darkest nook
before we try all the remedies in the book,
Replenish their love and together keenly pray
and shower them with care night and day.
Painful as it is to see one of our own thus bear
the burden that lay on them heavy and rare,
Hold them close until they are free of all care
and build a safe haven in this world of despair.
