For A & S, wherever you may be

Do you have good friends, close friends,
with whom you are comfortable in an instant
even though you are meeting after years?

What does comfortable mean, really?
It means you throw away inhibitions –
You may shriek with joy and then cry when you meet
Jump into bed together, suddenly you’re 4 year olds.
You don’t bother each other with niceties –
“Have you had breakfast? Would you like a towel?”
Because you know it’s OK –
They’ve already raided your fridge,
Your laundry, your cupboard!

You see a strange reflection of yourself,
wearing your tees, your pants, your shoes
(And you secretly hope that it stopped there!)
You wonder what has changed – what’s different?
Things that would make you mad if others did it
Are laughed away as foibles and peculiarities;
Things that would hurt if others said it,
Are shared, welcomed & laughed at together!
True freedom with another, a special feeling.

Do you have good friends, close friends,
with whom you are comfortable in an instant?
I do, I do – for A&S, wherever you may be.
