On my incredible journey through life
and even on my darkest paths,
there has always been a light,
as warm and bright as the sun.
A smile.
A hand up,
or a hand shake.
A shoulder to lean on
and even to cry on.
A warm embrace
and a heartfelt hug.
These are the treasures I’ve found.
They are the light,
that pierces my darkness.
They are the ones who light the way.
They are the golden chariot,
that has carried me,
from beginning to end.
They are my wonderful friends…
