Gorgeous! Thank you so much for this lovely poem. You know, the more I read of your work and get peeks into your life, the more you remind me of a dear friend of mine.

I promise you I’m not giving you this link just because I want you to read a story of mine, but I wish you could have known my friend who is something of a hero in the story, even if I do make a tiny bit of gentle fun of her in the end.

We had that kind of relationship. A little teasing was always in order.
