Finally finding someone
Whom you get to know so well,
And become so close to,
That you are tempted to call them your best friend,
Perhaps even your soul sister.
Someone whose next move you can predict,
whose next thought and feeling you can foresee
Almost as if they were the fruits of your own heart.
Someone whose life reflects yours to the most minute detail,
someone whose face and look tell the tale of a spirit
So free and untameable as yours has always been and will always be.
Someone whom you see every day in a rendezvous
that becomes one of your shining lights and star,.
A moment to hope for and to hold on to so dearly
when life is a stormy black cloud that throws your boat against the rocks.
The friend, oh such close friend
that is always there for you and is all you want and all you wish to be
And suddenly you remember
that it’s only a character in a book
and will never be more real
Than the shreds of the most blissful dream
that escape your grip when you reluctantly wake up.
