My Friend - Poem by Nicola Bowes

I cannot write
I cannot talk
She cannot see
She cannot hear
But together we are inseparable
Together we are free

She quiets me when I interrupt her
And shows me what I cannot see
There is nothing I can teach her
That she does not already know
But sometimes when she stumbles
I help her with a word
But ultimately the sentence comes from within her

Her presence is all knowing
She rids me of my fears
I thank her with my silence
She thanks me with her scream
Alone we both can dream it
But only together can we achieve it
