Blackened Gold

I touched the black you hide within your heart
Your anger walled to shade your deep despair
Like Jericho those bricks I’ll tumble down
The lights of love burn brighter when we share
My heart it aches to see your face so dark
The smile obscured that lit my darkest night
But I can in candescence guide you home
My lifted lantern fills your path with light
A friend in need our roles for once reverse
So often shoulder cried upon was yours
But now you need a hand to hold I’m here
The bond of friendship such a mighty force
The sun evaporates the mist of fears
Reminding us how golden are the years
