Dear Tracy, my friend
and sister of the heart.
My thoughts today run rampant.
How do I even know where to start?
Learning to trust again
was a large challenge for me.
I lost faith in friends for a time,
and I knew not what you saw in me.
Over the passing of time though
and with our many conversations,
you have helped to heal my heart;
of that there is not a question.
Never having really seen my face
you were also taking a chance.
No one likes to have their heart broken
while dancing the friendship dance.
The music that we dance to
is the pain and joy in our lives.
The enjoyment of dancing with you
is for me a wonderful surprise.
I'll try to be careful as we step,
since we're both kind of klutzes.
I'll really try not to trip you
with either one of my crutches.
Tracy, you're a very special friend,
and I love the smile I cannot see.
I feel it in your voice and words,
warming my heart as it comforts me.
