When We Became Sisters

It was a summer to remember

It was a summer beginning a friendship


I’ll never forget wherever that brick school was

The fresh beauty bark looked devilishly red like a garden of ripe tomatoes

We walked around in the ninety degree heat

We took millions of pictures

We savored our time together


We learned from each other

We tried to listen to the rules instilled by my mother

Our smiles could have lit up the night sky

We avoided the day we would have to say good-bye


Our friendship grew like a sunflower during that summer

We became so much more than simply cousins

We became sisters


That summer has ended

Come and gone

But the memories have not faded

We live a million miles away, yet are still so close
