Friendship

Kevin Shon & Sam, Denali State Park, Denali in background A Mile With Me
by Henry van Dyke

O who will walk a mile with me
Along life's merry way?
A comrade blithe and full of glee,
Who dares to laugh out loud and free
And let his frolic fancy play,
Like a happy child, through the flowers gay
That fill the field and fringe the way
Where he walks a mile with me.

And who will walk a mile with me
Along life's weary way
A friend whose heart has eyes to see
The stars shine out o'er the darkening lea,
And the quiet rest at the end o' the day--
A friend who knows, and dares to say,
The brave sweet words that cheer the way
Where he walks a mile with me.

With such a comrade, such a friend,
I fain would walk till journey's end,
Through summer sunshine, winter rain,
And then? Farewell, we shall meet again!

Jay,

Thanks for the links - both of them are very meaningful and impressive. Such a
hopeful, difficult, proud, scary, blessed time. Sam and all of you will
constantly be in my thoughts and prayers. I am sure the students last night
appreciated the meal - may the peace which passes all understanding be with you
today and always.
