To my best friend…

I was sitting here thinking
of the words I want to say 
but they just wouldn’t come out right
so I found a different way


I got a piece of paper
and I wrote this poem for you 
but there’s no way to thank you
for everything you do


For always being nice to me
and staying by my side 
for helping fix my problems
and never leaving me behind


For accepting my thoughts ‘n feelings 
though you do not understand 
for never giving up on me
and being my best friend


For making me laugh
and letting me cry
and saying you’d miss me
if I were to die


Everything you mean to me
you could never know
In all the ways you’ve changed my life
I could never show


The way you take care of me 
you are my shining star
and though it’s so incredible
that’s just the way you are


Before I get too mushy
it’s time for me to go 
but before I leave this ink-filled page
there’s one thing you should know


As long as we are living 
no matter when or where 
if you ever need me
just call ‘n I’ll be there


I’ll climb a thousand mountains
and swim a thousand seas
anything to be there
’cause you’ve been there for me…!
