This poem moved me, And when reading it I FELT the words of where the author Corky, is coming from. It also reminds me of a special friend Teresa, who has given me strength, when she didnt even realize she had.

Power Of A Friend

As I am awakened swiftly
From a deep and peaceful sleep
My heart is racing wildly
Like a million little feet.

The panic that I used to feel
Has turned to something new
A feeling of strength and power
That I have somehow learned from you.

You have empowered me
To take a look within
And find the love of a friend
Where fear had always been.

So, now I reach into the dark
And feel the ray of light
From the love a friend sends to me
Shinning bright into the night.
