I wonder how we got into this mess

I don’t know how we even became friends

But something that I know I must confess

I’ll stay with you, I swear, to bitter end


Your red uniform and your sparkling smile

Our laughter always makes the others glare

Though I know that we work in different styles

If you left me my life would be so bare


Behind the smile hides a past quite dark

A side I know you’ll never let them see

But somehow you have never lost that spark

The spark that flickers, drawing you to me


So long as both of us can still draw breath

We’re friends forevermore, up till our deaths

The author's comments:

Everyone has that special friend, the one that understands them on the deepest level, the one they would die for in a heartbeat. This poem is for that friend, my sister in all but blood. Never forget how blessed you are for friends like this.
