this one goes out
to the loyal believers
in those of us
prone to fall
from the earth’s face

without the support
and forethought they bequeath us
our will to go on
would diminish
post haste

and though we may not always
properly thank them
in ways that would truly
convey how we feel

our unending gratitude
stays with us always
regardless of whether or not
it’s revealed

for even the smallest of gestures remain
a part of the tapestry
weaved by such memories

mitigating the duress of each day
and giving us comfort
within life’s infirmary
