Friend In The Desert

The sands of time are endlessly deep and eternally wide
a void lost of mind to all thought of life ending light
shifting forever over all that at once was, and forever
over and throughout all that ever is of future to come.

What is to come must first be won, that true friendship
borne upon forever, it will bind our souls in eternal
brotherhood and allow all embraced by its cooling wind
the chance in thought to truly mend the differences of
lifes bleak, perplexing, and stigmatizing social blends.

On the light of the first new dawn will be justly drawn
that measure of each new souls true purpose and given
this each must remit and leave hatred alone to smother
and burn and die out on the sinless path to heavens home.

And on that moment when we call each other friend and
together walk hand in hand as family members bound with
loves true sight, the being divine, the light of lights
in righteous fire defined, will hear our minds and clear
our hearts of the fears in this life on earth forever.
