Tapestry

my best friend knows me

better than anyone else

(since we were thirteen)

 

she would even hike

to the ends of comfort zones

to stand by my side

 

love’s more than marriage:

a childhood commitment

through richer, poorer

 

blue skies and dark days

mark the myriad trials

we’ve weaved our way through

 

yet, she’s still taller;

more reserved and observant

than i’ll ever be
