Then you found me . . .

If you are lost in the wood, in the wood.

I will find you.

If you're afraid of the cold and the dark

I'll sit beside you . . .

About the author

Friends make all the difference, in good times

and bad.  We're lucky to

have them, whatever age

we are. And friendship

is as much about doing 

as it is about being. It's

an active thing. That's      what I wanted to write   about here.

About writing  Friends:

That's what friends do.
