For FOWC: Note. The first line was inspired by the beginning of a reading from Mass today. Isaiah 50:4
Sustain the weary with a word:
Allow their pain to now be heard,
To usher in a note of peace,
Like the song of a little bird.
Sustain the sad with present care:
Fear not a silent space to share.
For in the quiet, hearts can fill
With depth of friendship that is rare.
