garden moment

14 years ago today
my very best friend was stolen from me
she fought hard
for a long time
but grew weary
and slipped away
she loved me unconditionally
she was a rare friend
a true friend
she did not always agree
or understand
my thirst for the things of the Spirit
she never wavered in her love
and her friendship
I planted a garden in her memory
and now that we are moving
I have to leave the garden behind
and yet
the garden of her love
travels with me
its fragrance is very strong today
dance for me
see you soon
