When darkness
Seem a threatening
And light has been withdrawn
I recall the smiles of friends
When the abyss does yawn

I rarely do approach the edge
And never know just why
My shuffling steps creep nearer
To an edge that could just crumble
I remember my friends dearer

So never have I traveled down
Roads of no returning
Though close I passed, and scarred
More than one time I did approach
To darkness and left marred

Again I say, that I have found
Salvation at the image of
A friend’s laugh raised to the sky
For the life and soul of me I won’t
A brother’s love deny
