Touchstone (A Mara Prose Poem)


Dedicated to my best friend and touchstone, Nicky W., in celebration of not only our friendship but her birthday month.  Thank you for all you do and your willingness to go where I go.

It started with a little girl in tears and it’s been thirty years
A bond was formed that day and remained despite some strays
No matter where we are in life, you are always willing to sacrifice
To go where I go, help when I need and encourage when my heart bleeds

You are the wind beneath my wings
You encourage me to flourish and grow
You keep me grounded and on my flow
You accept all that is me, and help to make life more carefree
You have nursed me through some hard times and celebrated the best of times

Thank you for being you
Thank you for being true
Thank you for being not only my friend
Thank you for being a Godsend
You are truly my sister from another mister

We will be best friends no matter the distance
And our bond will carry on even after our existence
To the woman who has dried many tears, squelched many fears and always sends cheers
Never change, God bless you, thank you and much love to you…my Touchstone!
