Birthday Poem for Friends

This is a poem I wrote for my best friend for her birthday. Basically a poem that just expresses the extent of appreciation I hold for her.

Still And Careless Within

© Amelia Tracey
Within you, Iíve found the perfect friend
Someone who I know will be there till the end
And theyíre not just thoughts I hope will fulfill
But thoughts that will stand forever still

Still as the wind on a hot summerís day
Still as your friendship Iíll never betray
Still as the characters in a photograph
Still as your breathless, silent laugh

Within you, Iíve found the perfect friend
A mind that I can comprehend
A person I see is so much like me
A mutual relationship so carefree

Carefree as a child who questions the world
Carefree as a scream that goes unheard
Carefree as an adult blessed with a dream
Carefree as water flowing downstream

Within you, Iíve found the perfect friend
With whom I can be real, and never pretend
Youíve always been someone unique from the rest
You hold a piece of me no other can possess

Within you is reason to live every moment in time
Within you the life I want is always mine
Within you, I have the perfect friend
With you, I see myself till the very end
