The best kind of love

 

Dear Friend,

We both suffer, 
So I send my love –

My deep fellow-feeling;
That’s my kind of love. 

Better than pity,
I’m sending my love –

My deep fellow-feeling;
That’s my kind of love.

Stronger  than sympathy, 
Sending my love –

My deep fellow-feeling;
That’s my kind of love.

Greater than empathy, 
Sending my love –

My deep fellow-feeling;
The best kind of love.
