(c. 600 BCE / Greece)

Alaa, My Friend

When I was in excruciating pain
I looked up to find you there beside me
When I was sad, searching for hope in vain
I looked up to find you there beside me
When life turned my mind insane
I looked up to find you there beside me
When I limped, looking for a steady cane
I looked up to find you there beside me
When I thought I was lost, there was nothing to gain
I looked up to find you there beside me
When I cried, tears pouring like hard rain
I looked up to find you there beside me

I thought of who you are, why you were helping me
I discovered a meaning to the actions that had to be
It uncovered emotions long disintegrated to dust
It was friendship, love and beautiful trust
I was blind in life, in a tunnel so dark
Then you came, the shimmering light that left a mark
I will remember you, for the rest of my life
You solved my lonely problem and strife

You were and are my friend
To the end, to the end
Because when I was blind to happiness, I couldn't see
I looked up to find you there beside me.
