And so they laughed at your expense—
Giggled when you tripped,
chuckled as you fell,
and applauded while you wept.
Still—there is nothing softer than your heart
except for your soul sad with tears.
And I shall find you when you are lost,
love you when you are lonely,
and lift your heart up in spirit so you know—
You will always have the key—
Charles Coakley Simpson
