Blood Sisters

Sitting at the table Reminiscing about the past
The journey of their friendship that is unsurpassed
Many times have they cried and held each other tight
Marriages that had failed, and lovers that took flight

Passing of their parents they were at each others side
Giving each the comfort only true friends can provide
Hair a little grayer laugh lines cut deep into the skin
Still the twinkle in the eye sparks the memories within

Remembering the time they met they bonded right away
The vow that they took and kept till this very day
Just a pinky promise, a child's pinky swear
To be blood sisters through happiness and despair
