Poem About Being Thankful For Friends

I'm 13 years old and SO thankful that I have my friends! They've helped me through so much, and these words don't even begin to describe how appreciative I am towards them. Thank you.

There's this little thing called friendship.
I experience it every day,
And I will always be thankful that I have friends,
Because they have helped me along the way.

A friend is a flashlight in the dark,
A rainbow after the storm,
The sunshine after a cold, damp day,
The glue when you are torn.

I have friends I love like sisters.
(I know they love me too.)
They'll be there through thick and thin,
For I know their friendship is true.

The phone rang I could tell something was wrong, because of how many times the same number called, I answered it they said that you're gone, I asked how could this be he loved his life so much we we're planning on having a long day of fun so much to break such a strong bond...then I seen your name on Facebook. So many people saying you're gone I knew it was real I wish it was a Dream. I need God to return you to help me. I need a hug just a little goodbye if I could rewind time I would come with you that same day you died and jump in front of the truck that was going 45 miles. I would have got hit pushed you out the way I know you see me cry so many tears that you'd usually wipe away but you're in my heart forever you'll always be gone but never forgotten

Few lines remembered by reading this poem

_ I believe in angels,
The kind that heaven sends
I am surrounded by angels,
But I call them Friends.
