Sonnet for Strength

In Nature, what grows slowest grows most strong:
The hardest wood requires many years
To transform light and minerals and water
Into the form for which winds hold no fears.
Just so do friendships grow deep over time
As breaches heal and laughs and tears are shared,
While glancing quick acquaintances flash up
And fade away, for life’s storms unprepared.
Then how do we explain the way our hearts,
Though twinned together and grown close so fast,
Have also weathered so much hardship, yet
Have seen their happiness and warm love last?
The way twin vines enhance each other’s strength
Our long love seems to grow throughout life’s length.
