My Best Friend, My Sister

© Elacia Westbrooks
Before you were born
16 years ago
I found something out
I would never know

You would be the one
who kept me sane
and the best things in my life
you are to blame

Through good, bad
happy and sad
you are the best friend
I never had

I was here
you were there
running around the house
with trouble to share

Growing up
mama called us partners in crime
cause when we were together
doing wrong
we both did time

Now 16 years later
were are now far apart
two different states but you’re still in my heart
to my best friend Renytha
I'm glad you're my “sistah”!
