The Bracelet (c)
By Elizabeth Bowden
You are my best friend
An Inspiration, my shelter in a time of storm
I once borrowed your sweater for a dance,
You said it matched my outfit
I didn’t tell you but it fit too long in the sleeves,
Plus, it hid the bracelet you loaned me.
At the dance, certain people laughed and jeered
But I felt like a millionaire,
I felt like I was walking on air
Because your bracelet made me feel like my friend was there.
The bracelet, although held together
by string and friendship beads,
Made me feel special,
it was beautiful to me.
On the day I planned to return your bracelet
It fell apart in my hands
Devastation Is an understatement of how I felt
As I picked up each fallen bead
and place gently in a pan.
Knowing the time was getting closer for us to meet
With each footstep, your house was getting near
Just then I passed a store going out of business
And in the window, I saw a similar bracelet
Just sitting there.
So I bought two
One to give to you with this poem
And one to keep,
To remind me of my best friend
