best friends.

f is for friend.
for Brian

We were mind readers
But only for each other
Volumes spoken
Without a single word
A giant hug shared
Because we just knew
Laughter so strong
It hurt our insides
Support and love
Without hesitation
Destined to be friends
The perfect combination

My cousin Brian and I were born three months apart to the day. We sat together in preschool sharing crayons and cookies. Though we lived in different towns and couldn’t see each other as much as we wanted, we had a bond that built an amazing, unforgettable friendship. It wasn’t just because he was family – he would have become family to me anyway. Brian died when we were 19.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra began writing when she was a sixth grader. She is a teller of stories through poetry, fiction, and tales from her own life. And she thinks too much. Read, think, enjoy, laugh.
