A Friend from the Tribe
Mattmckeown

She is slender not too tall,
 1
her body reflects her warrior
 2
ancestors, generations of
 3
their blood and strength
 4
course through her veins
 5
 
 
her soft round face glows
 6
with warm eyes- pools of
 7
brown behind wire frame
 8
glasses long chestnut
 9
colored hair
 10
covering one side
 11
 
 
pursed lips with a tiny smile
 12
and a contagious laugh
 13
declare her beauty
 14
 
 
brandishing a soothing,
 15
squeaky voice, that drips
 16
like sweet honey-
 17
a kind word for all who
 18
encounter her
 19
 
 
her love-
 20
unconditional
 21
yet her soul is fragile
 22
searching for answers
 23
of her own, silent tears
 24
melt her broken heart,
 25
 
 
A different time and place
 26
I would call her
 27
my own-
 28
 
 
Now I call her friend
