Wings of Friendship

By Allison Stein, Assistant Editor and Poetry Editor


You excavate concealed truths,
Illuminate the shadows of my fears:
Through the miracle of love,
You heal my scars and cleanse my tears.

Your unspoken promises empower me
With the faith that makes life whole:
Your unbroken laughter caresses my worries,
Soothes the doubt that numbs my soul.

I let go of what I’ve lost,
Escape the mistakes I grieve:
I forget the sting of loneliness
And remember how to believe.

Wings of friendship carry my heart
Beyond the scope of imagination:
Your smile propels paralyzed hope,
Lifts me to my dreams’ liberation.
