Written in honor of  four of my  girlfriends

 We are the Ya Ya’s who are bright and bold
We hold each other secrets never to be told

We have been friends for over thirty years
We have been through sad times and tears

We share tales and broken pieces of our hearts
We share the struggles of life and all its parts

We laugh ourselves silly until the sun comes up
We roll with the punches and pass the cup

We are the Ya Ya’s who are friends forever
We are blessed with a kinship forever and ever
