I Walked a Mile With Pleasure

I walked a mile with Pleasure;
She chatted all the way;
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow,
And ne'er a word said she;
But, oh! The things I learned from her,
When sorrow walked with me.

So very true - my youngest son was killed nearly 7 years ago, and as he is , I also am so very changed. The price is huge, but the benefits have been many.
