There’s a jagged path that stretches far,
Memories formed through each turn like a scar,
You’ll meet many along it that much is sure,
Some will dish you pain while others are a cure,
To all the troubles and strife you meet,
Those certain companions – the pain they treat,
Cherish the ones you loved and lost,
For they in their own way lessened the cost,
Of stumbling that path completely alone,
Instead they raised you up and helped you home.
