Two Peas in a Pod

Written by: Trudy Diane Rider

Two peas in a pod?
My April and me?
No, not at all,
I would not agree

She is all sunshine
laughter and light
I’m shrouded in darkness
too much like the night

She is artistic, outgoing
well read,
I’m the quiet, shy
redhead

But no matter what
 my sister and me,
on one thing,
we’ll always agree

Our friendship is
tried and true
over the years
it grew and grew

deeply rooted as
Aspen trees
snug as a bug
a pod with two peas

Yes, I have to agree
though we are far apart
my April is closely
endeared in my heart.
