Wishes for Friends – Yasmine Ahmed-Lea

“But they say souls meet
Light miles before time
Where we were all together
In the covenant of promises
That can never be broken
By solid gold hearts
Yes only my beloveds
Were there
Both fortunate and
Less of fortune
Those who had lost all
But had still
Everything everything
Shared with me
In that day”
