friends-true

Every once in a while
it happens

You catch an eye
breath escapes
and you know
this is going to be
someone special
to you

This woman
is very special to me

I met her in passing
many a time
and it was so clear to me
she was incredibly unique

There is a magnetism
to her
that anyone
who has let themselves
feel her
is present to

She is a woman
who has done her work
and insists on
walking her talk
It’s rare in this world
and even more rare
in our industry

I feel blessed to know her

My heart was so broken
from a breakup
with my very best girlfriend
I was shattered
and at risk of becoming hard
when two amazing women
showed up for me
so pristinely
I will forever be touched
by their care

Renee was one of them

I remember sobbing so hard
I couldn’t get off the floor
and calling Renee
barely coherent
and she jumped right in

She never made
my feelings wrong

She never told me
I was too much
or too intense

She didn’t make me right
and the other woman bad,
never colluding,
always asking the best of me

She graciously,
so generously
just helped me see
and then she helped me
regain agency kindly

It was one of the greatest gifts
anyone has ever given to me
and for that alone
I would call her
a dear sister forever
But it gets better
she is fun
she is bright
she is wise
and she sees

This is a woman
who cares
profoundly
loves without
boundaries
and creates
as only an artist could

Renee I love you
and your precious heart

Thank you
for being
such a
good friend
to me
and for being
who you be

The world is better
with you in it
of that
I am sure

I believe
in magic
again
in part
because
of you
