A Brief Poem
By SUZANNE SCHOEFFEL
Teacher - Neighbor - Friend
to excite you
to fill you with the spirit of youth
to lend you an ear when you think
no one is listening
to wipe away your tears when you
think no one cares.
to make love to you when you need
to grasp your heart and clutch your soul
to endure all your pain as if it were mine
to help you always know you are not alone
this cold cold world
isn't it amazing how connected we are as a species?
