Girls In My Circle
When I was little,
I used to believe in the concept of one best friend,
and then I started to become a woman.
I found out that, if you allow your heart your heart to open up,
you would be shown the best in many friends.
One friend is needed when you're going through things with your partner.
Another friend is needed when you're going through things with your parents.
Another will sit beside you in the bleachers as you delight in your children and their activities.
Another...when you want to shop, share, heal, hurt, joke, or just be.
One friend will say, "Let's cry together,"
Another, "Let's fight together,"
Another, "Let's walk away together."
One friend will meet you spiritual need,
But whatever their assignment in your life,
It may all be wrapped up in one woman,
But for many,
It's wrapped up in several..
One from 7th grade,
One from high school,
Some from the college years,
A couple from old jobs,
On some days...your mother,
On some days...your neighbor,
On others...your sisters,
And on some days...your daughters.
So, whether they've been your friend for 20 minutes or 20 years,
Let them know they have made a difference in your life.
