ally

grasping cold hands
holding them close to my chest
rest your head on my shoulder
cry with me as we grow older

we can share burdens
learn from mistakes
voices change with age
but feelings stay the same

though our hearts never merged
eyes locked on others
bonds were formed
tightly woven – somehow divine

photos of yesteryear
let us embrace nostalgia
for memories of desire
longing for success

remain close to me
lets not sever ties
keeping eyes open
look for signs in the sky

no one alike
a feeling of comfort
of security
of trust

stay at my side
my friend
my accomplice
my lifelong
ally
