445. My two old friends are engaged

My two old friends, fear and doubt,
Are engaged.
At their wedding
I shall give them
My best smile and best embrace,
For I may not see them any more
Since they are planning to move away
After they get married.
When my friends, fear and doubt, go away
I will try to have two new friends:
Faith and courage.
