Along the path life’s passage wends
Are few milestones set to mark my Friends,
For no man could true fulfil that task
And be as I : give aught they might ask.
Unto a Friend one should surrender all
When’er his need takes voice to call,
Yet by this rule he must return the same,
If a Friend cries out in Friendship’s name.
Aye, many offer a hand, and many seek,
That Grail of which I herein speak;
Though one alone has proved in Life
To be a True Friend : my Eternal Wife.
