“we laughed until we cried”

725ECD0A-A00B-474B-8C5B-E6F6E6580F89We shared an exquisite connection

that is hard to portray or paint

It did not have a defined pattern

could not be copied, or questioned

instead mesmerized with a sincere gaze


We had a package deal

that juxtaposed an uplifting joy

with angst, and confusion

offered surety and strength

through uncertainty and storms


We watched each other closely

and as our extensions intertwined

we absorbed the wear and tear

while relishing sunshine and blossoms

Cultivating deep roots of our friendship


We created a new syntax, traced a new DNA

and let our bond be a teacher

It’s simplicity always elevating

refreshing in a predictable way

defining us as we grew into our lives


We laughed at and with each other

listening to tears before they trickled

never lacking a conversation

often choosing silence

letting our spaces absorb our fears


To the meandering years of being us

and the many more we will make

A Remembrance –

Here lives our friendship

scribbles + poetry

toast +  condensed milk

embroidery + imagination

rituals + weddings

journeys + cities

homes + decisions

tea + warmth

fears + opinions

cakes + crumbs

togetherness + tragedy

So long,
