Thank you for your recent contribution.
Hearts find words that best their love convey.
All tears, like rain, must flow into the sea,
Nor do they ever lose their destined way.
Know that your kind gift brings consolation.

Yet it also sponsors a solution,
Offering the haunted hope that we
Upon some shore shall see a brighter day.
