We were entangled by our thoughts and cares
Together, united – you showed up without question, constantly there
You swept up my mess of pain and tears
That manifested from the darkness of the past two years
You allowed me to cry and heal every day
By just being you, like an angel sent my way
How do I repay this beautiful soul, this treasure of a friend?
Lately I’ve been aloof, each day from start to end
I’ve been watching us ravel away, slowly, thread by the thread
I feel helpless, and honestly, absolute dread
How can this be? Me? The one unthreading our strands?
Carelessly unwinding the tiny pieces woven together, with my own hands
Watching the clock tick away, I wish somehow you’ll stay
I feel so faded, tangled, alone, astray
I pray, I pray, some day the grace you’ve offered me
Will be sent back to you, more vast than any sea
Truly a sister, my friend, I miss you
The Tapatio and lime to my Mexican stew
This poem is dedicated to my best friend. Pretty sure she knows who she is. I love you.
