Childhood Friend Poem

Friends Since Childhood Poem

Hi! My name is Lauren Manning. I will soon be a senior. I wrote this poem for an assignment in AP English. This poem is true; my best friend Lacey and I met in daycare when we were three years old. Another girl in daycare yanked a book out of Lacey's hand and made her cry, and that is how our friendship began!! Truly, my life would not be the same without her, and I am grateful to God for her.

Friendship: One Of God's Greatest Gifts

©

Published: September 2008

I was the young age of three,
and oh, so very small.
I knew almost nothing,
nothing at all.

When I saw a cute little girl
shaking with fear,
all alone in the corner
with her eyes full of tears,

I thought to myself,
I'll go be her friend.
So I went over to her
and touched her sweet little hand.

I said to my new friend,
"Do you want to play?"
My new friend said, "Yes,"
and her tears went away.

It's been fifteen years now,
and our friendship's still strong.
I can hardly believe
we've been best friends this long.

As I went to her that day,
I was the angel to be.
How could I have known
that God sent her to me?

But angels need two wings
if they don't want to sit and just rest,
so God combined both our wings
to show us we're blessed.

We can't thank him enough
for his gift of kindness and love.
We are both each other's angels
sent from heaven above!
