Loyalty


When day is gone and moon is nigh

When coldness creeps along the sky

When fear and darkness shake the soul

When paralysis and shock take hold

When danger lurks and surrounds

When knees grow weak to the ground

Then nothing can surpass

The loyal bonds that hold one fast

To the friends with whom is shared

Great sympathy and special care

For when in the darkest hour

Blood may be thicker than water

But friendship is thicker still

And friends will stand beside until

At last the goal and freedom reached

Bring all happiness and everlasting peace

About The Lost Poet

I write because I find inspiration. It is my hope that through my writing some connections may be felt. Everything I write comes from my experiences with life, and with the people that I love. I try to remember to see myself in everyone, and everyone in myself.
