Strength of Friends

The words of this poem
Have been so hard to write
To those people who saved me
From winter cold night
By giving me shelter
With a warm place to stay
And food on my plate
So I ate everyday
A shoulder to lean on
And a hand helping mine
Reassuring in future
That things will be fine
Confidence building
Returning respect
Using strength and kindness
To such good effect
Their names and faces
Will remain in my heart
Till the day that I die
From the day that we part.
