Give the ones you love , the wings to fly roots to come by and reasons to stay …….

I once asked a friend, Will you support me

in every decision I take?

So she replied "Ela, to the end of the line".

I believed her to be the True Friend, the Best 

Friend I ever had...

'Cause no matter how many times she made 

me mad ..I was never sad ..... but glad.

Until one day she turned to her side and 

plunged me in shallow waters.

She told me "Learn to swim in the dark light"

And then she left, never for me to look at her 

face again.

At that moment, I felt like I had swam all the 

way to a dam ...

Which would block me and lock me my whole 

life ....

Then there came a man, a father and a 


Who was not capable of anything, who turned 

me away ...

But then, for the Mother I have tells me 

to remember .

"There is still a lovely life and a place called

home ".

A True Consort is what I have, "I'll say, 

it really is ............."
