A Kindred's Poem

Just had news that a dear kindred of mine lost her mama last night.

My heart aches thinking of her pain.  It was so sudden.  Such a shock to the family.

I wrote a poem for her.

My dear friend lost her mama today
I cannot be there with her
I cannot take away her pain
But I can always pray. 

Pray for strength in the days to come
Guidance, understanding and love
But most of all a peace.
It will come.  I know.

I've never met this kindred of mine,
but, we would know each other!
My heart if her heart.
Her pain lives inside me.
