hidden meanings

i got a bracelet from a friend that has little silver ovals dangling from it, and on each oval plate it says 'sister' in a different language. i loved it when i first saw it and i still do.
this friend and i have been through quite a lot. lots of ups and downs and misunderstandings. we always make up in the end but it takes a lot of time for things to get back to the way they used to be.
one of the little plates on the bracelet fell off not long after i got it. it said irma. it was my favourite. i tried to put it back on but i musnt have done a good enough job because it fell off again. i keep finding it in weird places all over the house and even out the front on the driveway.
it was annoying at first, but then i found it comforting because it seemed to me to be just like our friendship. for one reason or another we'd lose each other for a while, but we always come back together somehow.
