Less Suffering With Love

Love In Sickness and Health

By Melanie Knapp

When someone loves you,

And they show you something,

About you that is sweet,

Then do they have to suffer?

When someone loves you,

And they show you something,

That you didn’t know,

Do you have to suffer?

When someone loves you,

And we come to an understanding,

We didn’t know before,

Do we have to suffer?

Come on angels! Work hard!

Help people to let the good feelings in!

I hope –

When we are helping

Other people

We don’t have to suffer.

I hope –

When we are feeding

One another

We don’t have to suffer.

I hope –

When we are loving

One another

We don’t have to suffer.

I hope –

When we are missing

One another

We don’t have to suffer.

I hope –

When we are praying

For One another

We don’t have to suffer.

I hope –

When we share

A kiss under the mistle toe

We don’t have to suffer.

I hope –

When we feel

Our difficult feelings for a while later

We don’t have to suffer.

But…. Sadly…

Sometimes we suffer anyways!

But… gladly…

There are ways around this!

Because…. Thankfully…

Sometimes we don’t suffer as much.

Sometimes we don’t suffer as long.

Sometimes we don’t suffer as deeply.

And… joyfully…

Sometimes we suffer together with our angels and,

Sometimes we overcome suffering together through comfort and laughter,

And sometimes just sometimes we avoid suffering.

May you feel the hope and love and light,

Of overcoming some of the suffering in your living and dying,

May you enjoy your precious friendships in some,

Small ways over the New Years as I will too.

Friendship is divinely special and one of the most important things on earth, it is there for you when other things aren’t, it is something you can nurture, foster and create in your life. From my heart to yours suffer less often, and celebrate the warmth of kind friends and important angels, and sometimes they are one and the same, and sometimes friends bring happiness to earth.
