United they stood Differences didn't matter Friendship grew stronger Nothing could tear them apart Untied by blood, joined by fate
I hope you enjoyed this Tanka. 😊 We all must have friends who make our lives much better by their mere presence. We have certain people with whom we forge bonds that are strong enough and as good as blood relationships. This one is dedicated to all those bonds of friendship.
