A Recipe

A Recipe

Prep Time: every relationship, every friendship, every moment in life; so however long it takes.


One tablespoon of tenderness
2 cups of patience (it runs out quickly)
Old memories grounded into powder
A pinch of insecurity
A rare amount of confidence
2 friendships that last
1 friendship that falls apart
Half of a broken heart
3 Promises kept
Firm and chilled expectations
Soft and moldable exceptions
4 cups of unconditional love
1 lb of yourself-you’ll never get back
An ounce of faith
A smidgen of luck

Note: Error is success.

Mix, bake, pray, love, hurt, cry, laugh, smile, remember, grow, change, love and be loved always. Repeat until successful.
