All of the friendships in the world do not change that.
No one else can do either for us,
This is as it’s always been.
Looking to God,
Looking to our family,
We look to others for comfort,
But there is nothing,
Only the comfort we find within.
We fool ourselves thinking otherwise.
Why do we look for solace in acquaintances,
Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers;
They cannot travel our journey.
In passing they cannot hold our hands.
This does not mean they do not love us,
Only that they can do nothing,
But wish us well and pray that our journey
Is something greater than a trip to oblivion.
