Day 105: Ode to Friendship

My dear friend,
When did I last see you,
A year, a month, a week, a day, a moment ago,
Or are you still by my side.
When was the last time I told you,
You make laugh, think, fight and sometimes cry.
But when you put your hands around me,
Or when you call me at the right time
I know our friend E.S.P is still connected
And you felt my need.
We will travel for each
To soothe hurts, celebrate moment
To make sure the other is never alone.
Lace each other up for a fight,
Understanding that my punch
Is filled all your strengths,
I don’t need a wall to hold me up,
Even if I fall
You will catch me and
Stand me back up
So it is any wonder,
That even in our darkest times
When I see you
My world is lit
With joy.

AN: Just very grateful for all the people I have in my life, my friends who always inspire me and challenge me, so that I will be the best version of me. I don’t think I tell them enough how blessed I am to have them in my life.
