A poem on the occasion of my friend's birth

Kith: The word of the day on your birthday.

Meaning: both family and friend.

You have a place in both categories,

Yet, both of them you transcend.

You are more than a friend, a soul sister,

A spirit kindred to mine.

You are a present from heaven, above,

A dispensation divine.

In humility, I thank God, alone,

For letting our pathways meet.

You've impacted my life for the better,

Contributing joy, replete.

Though distance and time keep us separate,

You stay near to my heart.

When we're in heaven, together, we will

Nevermore be apart.
