#26. The Magic of ‘Sister-Friends.’


Day 10. NaPoWriMo- Celebrate Poetry, All Month Long!

Poem: The magic of ‘sister-friends’

We almost believed the myth of our alone-ness 

The lies and fallacies of our sad separate-ness

We are not just a part, we are also part of a whole

We’re connected in heart, spirit and soul

This is the magic of having a true friend

A friend who stays loyal to the very end

One who willingly lets their own inner-light

Guide us in the lonely darkness of our night

They see us without the mirror’s lies

And understand our unwept, silent cries

They share our pains and rejoice in our gains

Our flaws and nakedness they also see

Yet with love in their hearts they simply let us be!


Oh but the magic of friends, who celebrate our glory

And accept us always when we’re good, ‘bad’ or ‘unholy’

Embracing us in our dance of shame

Steadfast and solid, they choose to stay the same

They are there when hopeful hearts get broken

And once bubbly spirit become far from merry

True and real, they will never leave us forsaken.


As we relive and reminisce on girlish dreams long-buried

They are there when difficult relationships go and come

When young brides, weeping widows or single women become

When dark clouds cast an opaque veil on our sun

New lives rebuilt and new relationships are reborn

And they are there to tell us seemingly painful truths and harsh words

Holding us back when we choose to self-destruct on our own swords.


They rally round and crush the tiger’s tail

To save our path, and pray that we not derail

There are few things in life that are as sacred and sweet

As the magic of these true sister-friends we’ve been blessed to meet.
