In It Together

Tornado sirens

Tornados

Beer & BBQ

Torrential down pour

Watching in awe

Uber’s

Awkward hotel neighbor

Stain glass windows

Cary Grant

Amazing suite

Laughter

Lots of it

Sleep- finally

Lazy loafing

In our underwear

Front row seats to Cardinal game

3rd base dugout

More beer

Face plant running up stairs

Tipsy

Beautiful faces

Too far down dark street

Drug deal 5ft from us

Vanilla Crown

Cookies

Homemade chips smothered in cheese

Room service

Budweiser tour

Clydesdales

Drag queens

Horrible country bar

Nasty Lyft driver

The blues

Best gumbo ever

Best sax player ever

Secrets whispered

Freedom

Janice

Laughter

Tears

Feeling family

Everywhere

One for the books

Missing you

Missing me

Distance can’t take

A sisterhood that withstands

Anything

Especially with us

In it together

Always

You & I

You step

I step

I push

You pull

The scrapper

The antagonizer

Verbal sparing

Shoves everyone away

Inability to match- 

Steps…

Heartbeats…

Passions…

A lot to handle

Too little time

Not wrong, not bad 

It simply is what it is

Challenging 

Will take time

Reads like a book

Openly taunting 

Candor to the max

You step

I step

I push 

You pull

You a you

I an I

Mismatched

To the max

With a twist

We’ve got each other’s

Back

Believe in each other’s 

Dreams

Hope for each other’s 

Hearts

Just not together 

Journey alone

Walking alone

It’s always been so 

Regardless of 

Intention

Perspective

Intensity

You a you 

I an I

There is nothing

You can’t do

When you set 

Your mind to it

Every time

You step

I step

I push

You pull

You will

I will 

When we’re ready

For now

You & I are just…

You a you

And 

I an I

Set Your Own Course

Set your own course

Before, during & after

The storms

Be Brave

Embrace your now

Your truth

Your pain

Your sorrow

Your joy

Your laughter

Your highs

Your lows

You are not alone

This too shall pass

You are not a victim of

Circumstances 

Or

Weak minded

Or a twisted mess

Soon enough your course 

Will straighten out

Sure it’s a pinch crooked

A little bent

The journey will make you

A lot stronger

So heal

Let go

Take a breath

Do something you’d 

Never do

Be startled

No fear

No regrets

Lightening too close

Stand a little taller  

Walk it out

I see you

Really see

Deep into your eyes

The truth reflecting 

In the mirror

Be bold

Stay grateful

For every breath

Don’t you dare

Look back

You’re not going 

That way

Believe 

Set your own course

And go
