The Girls in MY Circle

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on January 31, 2008


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 to open up,
You will be shown the best, in many friends.

One friend is needed when you’re going through things with your partner.
Another friend when you’re going through things with your parents.
Another will sit beside you in the bleachers as you delight in your children.
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 your spiritual need,
another your shoe fetish,
another your love for movies,
another will be with you in your season of confusion,
another will be your clarifier,
another the wind beneath your wings.
But whatever their assignment in your life,
on whatever the occasion, on whatever the day,
or to hold you back from making a complete  fool of yourself …
those are your best friends.

It may all be  wrapped up in one woman,
but for many, it’s wrapped up in several…  
one from junior high school,
one from the college years,
a couple from old jobs,
on some days your mother,
on some  days your sister,
on others, your aunt, cousin or a neighbor,
and some days a blog buddy.
