To A Friend I Give A Gift - Poem by Alison Smith

She gave him a path
To achieve his goal
She couldn't walk that path
Just show him the way.

His dreams and his future
Lay waiting for this decision
She could only make sure
He was armed for the fight.

I have chosen you as a friend
Though sometimes I wish it could be more
But still I will help you
With everything that I have

All this I give to you quite freely
Though many will call me mad
I wish only to see you free again
To see completeness in your life

To once again have your family
To hold your children, to laugh
That is all I wish from this
That is why our paths have met.
