This poem I wrote to my best friend of four years that I will never forget. I think it is very important for every one to have a true best friend, and I hope that everyone is as lucky as me and finds one. And once you have one, never let go of that friendship.

This poem originally was published in Friendship Poems

True Best Friends
Like a needle in a haystack,
true friends are hard to find.
That's why I'm so thankful that I can call you mine.
Whenever I need a shoulder you're there to catch my tears.
You've kept my many secrets,
Throughout the past four years.
You've been there through my afflictions,
You've witnessed my defeats.
I'll remember all the good times,
And pray the bad ones don't repeat.
With you my heart is honest,
but there's one thing I never told you.
Thank you for everything you've done
There's no one else like you.
No one that could ever be a
true "best" friend like you!

    I love this poem b-cuz I have a friend who is always around when I need her the most. Yeah we had our bad times but we came through and yes I do pray that the bad times don't repeat. When I need a shoulder, a hand, and someone to talk to she is always there. I thank her and appreciate her for always being there when I needed her the most. Good friends are so hard to find but a friend like her is really worth the search.
