My Best Friend

Published: March 10, 2020

Whenever I am lonely,
You're always by my side,
And when I call to you for help,
You never run or hide.

You're with me when I need you.
I hardly have to say,
"I need you now, I'm lonely."
You brighten every day.

When shadows fall so dimly
And crickets no more hide,
I'm not afraid to slumber,
For you'll be there by my side.

You'll be my friend forever,
Making every day more fun,
And I'm glad that you are with me
As another day is done.

A friend is a wondrous thing to have,
An earthly prayer come true,
And daily I give thanks that I
Found such a friend in you.

This poem is very nice. It reminds me of my online BFF (which is also my doppleganger). She lives in a different state from my country, but we connect by sending messages to each other. We are so identical in many ways.
