A friend will hold your hand as they lead you to the edge.
They will scan the horizon with you and hear fears escape your lips.
A friend will hold you, but you won’t be withheld.
Compelled by their hope, a friend will push you to risk.
A good friend won’t keep your feet on the ground.
A good friend sees the best and tells you a story for you to take — even as you’re going away,
a good friend waves
Amazed to see you become what they’ve always known you to be.
A good friend sets you free.
