Loosen The Chains

I wish I could loosen the chains on my friend,
I wait for the day when she will become free.
She's summoned a fate which I can't comprehend.

Someday she'll come home and our friendship will mend,
For now I will pray but alone I will be.
I wish I could loosen the chains on my friend.

Although she has the kindest soul god could lend
Her troubles were much too heavy to carry.
She's summoned a fate which I can't comprehend.

Fourteen years old is a young life to descend
She's been locked away and it's no use to plea.
I wish I could loosen the chains on my friend.

A life filled with misery she can't pretend.
She showed me her terrors but I couldn't see,
She's summoned a fate which I can't comprehend.

I'm praying that one day this pain will all end.
I'm waiting, I'm wishing she'll return to me.
I wish I could loosen the chains on my friend,
She's summoned a fate which I can't comprehend.

Its always hard to be away from a friend, it feels like your world should just end. Just be there for your friend always through thick and thin. Me and my best friend are goin through the same thing.

Your poem was beautiful. Sometimes it seems like the bonds of life are somewhat like the bonds of that friend of yours. We don't comprehend what others have gotten themselves into. You're poem shows the meaning of true love for your friend, staying with her no matter what. Thank you for showing your heart to us through your poem.
