If it’s really friendship…

it curves to the arc of a rainbow bursting with bright colors

and fairy dust.

If it’s really friendship

it rhymes with nothing and goes with everything

and has the scent of first spring rain.

If it’s really friendship

it may only make sense in the heart

as a journey of faith with its own language, rhythm and rules.

If it’s really friendship

it climbs and champions, growing bigger when you walk away from it

almost begging you to stay.

If it’s really friendship,

it’s selectively honest, fully compassionate and most like home,

even when…

If it’s really friendship,

it grounds, lifts, redeems

and extends itself in a way that says “I will if I can and then some.”

If it’s really friendship,

it forgives, forgets and filters out the funk,

sways in strong wind without tiring or breaking,

exceeding expectations and saving us again and again.
