C’est Nous

find a

quiet space

and take

your ease,

weariness

seeping out

of every

pore

with each

sip.

 

quiet words

to ease

an aching

heart;

commiseration

over shared

hurts,

tempering a

bitterness

with the

sweetness

of milky

tea.

 

a sigh

a sob

a look

forlorn

and wistful;

a hand

on a

shoulder

a push

in the

right way

a smirk

giving way

to a

smile.

 

clinking cups

a toast

to us;

after all

that we’ve

been through

and all

we’ve said

in all

the years

we’ve been

friends

i can

never

be grateful

enough

for the

grace

of this

friendship.
