Conspiracy

- Primula
Leaving your comforts behind you,
Your greatest treasures remain.
Knowing you better
Than you might know
yourself.

To cheer, to uphold and to comfort,
With unwavering love to guide;
In silence they meet
Your choice-torn eyes,
and heart.

One breath drawn in with acceptance;
This firelight on faces of friends,
This pledging of lives
That none shall walk
alone.

They give you an eternal treasure
Beyond any gold-coin or gem.
In friendship they pledge,
Risking their lives
and homes.

These are the ones you'll remember,
When around you that darkness descends,
Greater than warriors,
Giving in truth
Their hearts.

Lift up your eyes from your sorrows,
Give them one last strong embrace;
For the last tears to fall,
And the end of it all
apart.
