In Between Us


Image



in between us
there are seas
I couldn't swim across
but the bridge of friendship
keeps us close


in between us
time and seasons change
nevertheless we are the same
travelling abreast in time
singing the same rhymes


in between us
our thoughts sometimes differ
yet each day we understand better
of who you and I are
 the bond of friendship grows stronger

  1. In between us...

    ...the mystic of friendship open its wings and make a solid ground over the quicksand of loneliness, and sadness.

    You do not lose your poetess skill, BB

    Thank you!

  8. The depth of this kind of friendship is priceless, Balqis. I am fine with only rare friends as long as the relationship is how it is in this poem. Your words are beautiful, my friend. ♡ :-)
