My Friend

We walked for exercise, went to plays and listened to beats.
When she cooked, she’d call, “these ingredients, all?”
At school we did assignments together.
Took the kids out in any weather.
She had a heart attack … and I thought, I won’t have my friend back.

She was resilient and prevailed.
One day, fate intervened and our kids found each other for me, what a scene.
I got her number and placed a call.
We just walk more slowly and that seems to be all.
