what started as two lost boys grew into a greater gift.
a couple of lost brothers found a group that provided a lift.
a lift of spirits, mentality. a soon to be wonder.
some direction, clarity. no more slipping under.
we barely knew each other, but were so willing to accept.
the gift would grow greater, this we did not see yet.
meeting on their first year, but the brothers’ third.
and the bond of the people would connect by one word.
LOVE is what we all had, like a family, not friends.
we cared and loved each other, we were never subject to trends.
and the first bond was set, between a gem and a cur.
an emerald and a boy, new possibilities to occur.
the years went by as the gem stuck to one brother.
in possession of a much greater gift, the 9th Wonder.
friendship is the 9th, and from friendship sprouts love.
we all loved each other, under one umbrella above.
as the years went by, there was unavoidable drama.
what we didn’t expect, was we gave ourselves bad karma.
we wore each other out, the pain we couldn’t undo.
but we forgave each other because we wanted to pull through.
in the long run, our family sadly shrunk in size.
the gem no longer with the cur. it caught everyone by surprise.
those who are left are still unconditionally close.
but with the few that we have, there’s still room to boast.
because we are still the family, even when nature has her ways.
none repelling, we could be around each other for days.
where has the time gone?
the watch broken but still on.
where is our faith now?
in pain, we survive somehow.
where did everybody go?
like footprints in tall snow.
we will always be a family, and i know we all miss it.
we’re still able to make the best of every moment.
for those of us left, i’ll protect you with all that i can.
and for the other brother i started with: our friendship has infinite sands.
i’m sorry it came to this, this loosely tied end.
what was once so strong is now weak enough to bend.
although that strong knot at the end is but only a lighter.
there to spark a lift just as in the beginning but even mightier.
