Long to Belong #poetry #photography #friends


Two, Never the same

 somehow always connected

your laugh is mine

something distance can never claim

the waves of life crash

and then recede

carrying tales of long ago

on pages past

As I sat by his side

I saw your eyes

so full of other worlds

soon carried out by the tide

 we’ve had to endure

life’s many storms

 friends bound by fate

 forever sisters

(of that I am sure)

Thanks to Poet’s United for the prompt Best Friend. Last week I had the honor of sharing sweet memories with my best friend’s dad. A man (and family) who made my life whole.

 

“We’ll  be Friends Forever, wont we, Pooh?” Piglet asked.

“Even longer.” Pooh answered.

  1. It is wonderful to find a friend who becomes family – and even better when their family happens at the right time to become your family, and makes your life whole. I love “I saw your eyes so full of other worlds”. Beautiful.

  2. My best friend shared the changes in her life with me, so much tragedy! But knowing you have a sister during those times as well as times of laughter is precious. This poem is a delicate many layered rose.

  3. Sadly I never had that relationship with my brother so I have searched for such a mateship all my life; that undemanding love and care of sibling friendship. Beautifully written poem.

  4. This is so gorgeously written….’your laugh is mine, something distance can never claim’–what a beautiful way to depict a deep emotional connection that cannot be stolen by physical distance.
