The Alchemy of friendship

The Alchemy of friendship

I gave you my peril

You gave me a pearl

I gave you my shattered soul

You gave me your world

My perspective was prosaic

You altered my prism

You said my life was a mosaic

I just needed to walk out of my prison

I surrendered to self-love

Fought the fear, learned from the pain

I mined my spirit treasure trove

Began to believe in myself again

The alchemy of our friendship

Is our odyssey to embrace

I cherish our companionship

I am forever touched by your grace
