    My brother,
    You see me physically,
    While I see you mentally,
    You are the physical,
    Manifestation of my heart,
    Big and strong,
    Yet times are Bleak,
    We are estranged,
    Weak, unable to speak.
    Even though Im your soul mate,
    We can never part,
    I given you all you need,
    If I am your sistah,
    And you are my brother,
    Why cant we just love one another,
    Arguments in the streets,
    Shouts throughout the home,
    All night crying,
    Cause your still gone,
    Someone please call 9-1-1,
    Cause someone has broken in my home,
    Lonliness and misery they raped,
    And got the best of me.
    The Women were just a casualty,
    Of something that wasn’t meant for me,
    You,
    The good times were the best,
    Our children,
    Our home.. where we nest,
    Lord knows I married my best friend,
    Because we were both sure
    The pain and heartache would never end,
    We needed someone who would never leave,
    Who better than a best friend?
    Till death do us part,
    You,
    My best friend.
    Will always have my heart.

    I have been there, and it seemed so hard to believe that the good times actually had ended, that what was a best friend, no longer was. I felt this emotive piece, it touched me poet.

    This endearing piece sadly states that the honeymoon is over, but our heroine once again comes to the rescue, salvaging what can never be lost. Like a kid in a candy store I want more of this, and... that!

    Thank God for tomorrows...."the never end"
    and tomorrow is always a new day
    a new beginning...a sign that time is passing
    which means the healing process is beginning

    Nice flow!
