Remind Me

by Sharon Keys Seal

Someday,

when our fragile friendship

sprouts tendrils of trust

and we begin to venture

beyond that which we

so cheerfully and carefully present,

remind me to share my many

foibles, adventures,

fears and dreams.

We are each more

and less

than others see.

Cherished is that friend

who knows without asking

who that real self might be.

Through your eyes

and in the telling,

I remember who. I am,

coming full circle back

to recognize

myself anew.
