    A friend who decides to stay, when 'the hero' decides penance for his crimes
    Sort of sequel to "Contemplating in Solitude"


    I look into those solemn eyes,
    Heart filled with sorrow.
    My eyes speaking for me,
    disgraced by shame.

    I speak to the holy god,
    confessions for my wrongdoings;
    And he shows no escape,
    Only results are sufferings.
    What I did I must bear
    the consequences of, I know.
    So I stand, my head bowed,
    and stare the earth below.

    I have but one, a company,
    to survive me of loneliness.
    Bring a smile to my face,
    only the joy to harness.

    How long shall you wait, my friend?
    My penance could last a lifetime.
    To break my shell of isolation,
    to unburden me of my crime.

    My cries could effect you,
    My pains shall discomfort too.
    But you stay in my displeasures,
    A friend so dear and true.
    I know I would have died long ago,
    I live because of a friend like you.



    true Friends stay when the world walks away......so correct!
