BEST FRIENDS

The pairing of words

that becomes

a melding of hearts.

Not just hands are held,

but shoulders up

and spirits lifted.

Blood bonds sisters

but love

makes best friends.

Calls late at night

that still

the raging silence.

There to embrace

through the sobs

and laughter alike.

Blood bonds sisters

but love

makes best friends.

Conversations are held

without

words in the way.

The meaning never lost,

as we smile

or fall to tears.

Blood bonds sisters

but love

makes best friends.

If ever a mistake,

forgotten

without any request.

All is accepted,

this is not fault

and never failure.

Blood bonds sisters

but love

makes best friends.

Never give up on me,

Always there

leaning on each other.

A life long link formed:

a support system

and sheltered home.

Blood bonds sisters

but love

makes us best friends.
