That We Share

by Chesney Peyton

 

We’ve weathered the storms
of friendship and foe
Taken strength from above
Lost our footing below
Ridden the waves
that’ve left us lost at sea
And soared, crashing into shore
where fate felt we should be
Found comfort in the rarest ways
Held contempt for so much more
than either could imagine
the other ever asked for
Both blind at times to where we stood
And deaf to what we heard
Mute to words that could’ve been said
And dumb to what should’ve been learned
While we’ve traveled side by side
Though we’ve drifted far apart
What we’ve had, and that we share
Rest merely matters of the heart
