To A Friend - Poem by Matthew Holloway

The shadows which haunt us
May mislead you to a lie
The sorrow we all shall carry
May weigh heavy upon you
And in those tired hours of day
When worn you fail to see
How much you are loved
How great you can be
When the pace of this world
Seems to leave you behind
And you feel alone, afraid
I ask you to take a single breath
To remember your friends are near
And wish you never to change
They wish you joy and love
And what is more they wish
You to see just how beautiful
How great you can be
