Let us also go . . . die with him.

Face of the authentic bond
Value of the true friendship…
Spontaneously said, sincerely expressed:
I want to come with you even in the death.

Ready to loose all I have
Because I love you so deeply
Because I believe in you
Because I believe in the quality of our relationship.

Let us also go to die with Him, he said
As His love for them
Stirred a kind of reciprocity
They were ready to embrace.

Pure love truly felt!
Engaging for the heart and the spirit
Inviting to reply wholeheartedly
And truly as if His fate were also theirs.

Let us also die with Him:
It is simply the label of beauty in friendship
True. Genuine. Rare.
What an authenticity!
