"Weddings and Funerals”

Best friends   
sharing whispered secrets late into the night   
laughing at inside jokes   
crying at sentimental Hallmark card commercials   
dreaming   
Best friends 
writing voluminous letters across the years   
freezing moments with photographs   
offering comfort and strength 
supporting 
Best friends 
visiting at weddings and funerals 
revealing superficial news 
concealing heartbreak and disappointments 
surviving 
Best friends 
reconnecting despite differences 
creating new laughter 
rediscovering commonalities 
hoping
