A blade of grass bending in the breeze
is less resilient than your spirit,
which I feel flies freely
in spite of your wounds,
all the restraints placed upon you
because of a careless move by another
on a highway so long ago.
You are a forever friend,
and although it’s time
for me to move onto another pathway,
I am thankful for the time we’ve spent together.
You’ve gifted me with many smiles,
so gracious and lovely they’ve often outshone
the warmest morning sunshine.
Thank you, Sue, for letting me be
your friend, and for giving me
the same friendship in return.
*for my friend, Sue*
