This month (July) celebrates National 'Cheer Up the Lonely' Day.  What a great idea!  Here is the poem I wrote to honor this occasion:

Cheer Up the Lonely

Cheer up the lonely,
offer them hope.
You may just become
their reason to cope.

Offer them love and
a hand to seek out
when swamped by waves of
fear, grief and doubt

Liven their days with
bright bits of aid,
something they’re needing
when doubt pervades.

Cheer up the lonely…
remember it’s true--
what you give to others,
they’ll give to you.


Wherever you are and whatever you're doing, I hope that you aren't lonely.  If so, here's someone who cares.  Sending hugs to all!
