Freezing fingers interlace, fighting over the tiniest bit of heat
Cold winds chill noses and whip hair across blushing cheeks
Warm laughter and lively smiles disregard the cold
Black asphalt splashed with yellow lines lead us on
Side roads don’t scare us, creatures of darkness hide
Bright eyes and dreams of what might happen light up our steps
We dream together, planning our separate ways, but always having a plan to meet again
This is what our friendship is.
There is no such thing as empty laughter,
Fake smiles, or unfulfilled promises.
Hands interlock within each of our hearts
Pulling us to stay together,
Pushing us to become stronger.
Arms are open for the one with a burden too heavy to carry.
Anger and love explodes at the stupid mistakes made
Simple advice is told to always keep us moving
This is what our friendship means.
Midnight texts and calls waking up grumpy sleepers
A shaking voice asking for help
All irritation disappears
Sleepy eyes flash open as fears or nightmares are told
Loving, caring words are spoken to sooth a restless heart.
There is something deeper than just words,
It is an understanding.
It is a true friendship.
