Lean on me, swing in my arms,
I'll listen, cry, be there for you.
A lifetime of sharing
secretive giggles, hearts sharing
womanly futures. My smile, my arms
listless now, so far removed from you,
lovely SaRa. I cherish you,
your spunk, your thoughtful sharing
ways. About my heart, your arms
I'll always feel, comforting, supporting, sharing.

This is my attempt to write a Tritina for dVerse "Form For All". The endings did not have to rhyme, but the end words had to follow this pattern: A B C / C A B / B C A. Not sure sharing was the best word to choose to make this poem run smoothly, but I ran out of time. I will attempt this again as I think it gives a poem a lyrical quality (read the others I have linked as mine is just OK).
I have always wanted to write a poem about these two, my daughter on the left, a BFF on her right. They have known each other since 5th grade and are two lovely young ladies pursuing their dreams far apart now. But as some girls tend to be, they are friends for life... It is the greatest treasure in the whole world.
