POEM 287: ON FRIENDSHIP


When the sun got hotter,
you found another shade.

When the mountain fractured a part,
you found another height.

When the ground gave away,
you crawled unto another.

When the ocean raged fiercely,
you found another lighthouse.

When the wind got harder,
you clung to another.

Let the sun come down
and the mountain roll over…

Let the ground sink deep
and the oceans o’er flow…

Let the wind sweep all away
I’ll hold on to the thin rope of empathy.
