Back in college we got rings
at the mountain we were branded with patterns
linked across state borders and through time
a friendship that has always endured

With a bump in our cosmic road
a matching hope stone
smooth and gray, a perfect fit in our palm
transferring heat and energy

First we are the source,
it now belongs to the stone
and is offered back
as we feel it and turn it in our hands,
the hope emanates and surrounds us
it pulls us through this time of challenge

and I’m with you,
through every pace,
at every moment

Though at times our feet might drag-
(mine more than yours)
we will ultimately skip
and be stronger because of it

There is so much strength,
so much power in you
its this energy that sustains
those you love and who love you
like the heat of that stone

I will never stop holding it, restoring heat
knowing that you are receiving energy
empowered by our friendship
that defies time and space

We will move through this
and skip for years to come

you have all my love,

amy g.
