As we trudge life’s treacherous trail

That might be going nowhere

With you as my companion

We might just end up somewhere


For each blind leap of faith

I value our shared camaraderie

In your friendship I trust

It was never mandatory


When you are tired

I will take the lead

And carry you

If there is ever a need


Footsteps side by side

Shoulder to shoulder resilience

Leaning on each other

Impossible to outshine brilliance

    the kind of friendship that is tested and tried but remains so strong, I especially like the taking turns to lift the other up, what true friendship is all about.
