Fri -end- ship

Friendship isn’t an easy experience

The gardeners must help the soil thrive

It takes many elements for growth


I can be here now

I want to be apart 

of the shifts in your being


Somewhere it grew beyond us

we lost our authentic intimacy 

Lost security in the roots

despite the tugs

A haze of too many voices


Walking alongside

silently through all the winds of change and storms

Finding our way back like the tides and waves 

meet time after time


It’s a selfish time to explore yourself

The versions of yourself


To love for each other and live for what’s been

and what is yet to come

Both apart and together


I love you 

nothing will take that feeling away

But we think and feel 

against each other
