“Ode To My Best Friend”
August 28th, 2011
There’s no escaping and no denying,
I must admit it’s true-
I could never, ever love another
as much as I love you.
You’ve helped me to see things clearly,
Softer and far more tender than ever before,
You’ve taught me, told me, inspired me, showed me.
Every day that passes, I can love you only more.
You’ve held my hand and listened
as I’ve bawled and screamed and cried.
You’ve embraced me when I needed it most,
and calmed the wounded beast that was hurting inside.
You were patient and kind, never once did you mind
When I thought I had lost my faith in it all.
I knew you’d understand and be there for me.
Never once did you let me fall.
In you I have found my best of friends,
You are more than I could ask.
To describe the indescribable
Is now my most formidable task.
I value each day we share together
But as our days turn to months and years,
Always remember to never forget
That the best is yet to come, my dear.
