True Friend Poem

I remember my first day of k-5,
When I sat there and cried for my mom,
You came over and sat next to me,
And we’ve been best friends ever since.

I’m the luckiest girl alive to have a friend like you.
You’re one of the nicest people I know.
Friends like you are one in a billion.
I can’t believe God blessed me with a friend like you.

We lost contact for a few years,
But that didn’t stop our friendship.
I remember that October day
When you showed up in my driveway.
I couldn’t believe it was you.
I was so happy to see you,
And you were happy to see me.
That was one of the best days of my life.

I’ve had lots of friends over the years.
They came and went, but you never left.
You’re still here, even after eleven years.
All those other “friends” taught me the meaning of a true friend.
They never really cared what went on in my life.
They just turned and walked away when things didn’t go their way.

Anybody who doesn’t want to be your friend,
Just hasn’t taken the time to get to know you.
Because if they had, they would want to be
Your friend forever and ever, until the end of time.

I hope you know how much you mean to me.
You’re the sister that God forgot to give me.
You understand me like nobody else,
And you’re the one person who I know will
Always be there to turn my tears into a smile.

I will always be there to turn your tears into a smile.
When you need a shoulder to cry on,
A hug to make you feel better,
Or someone to listen to your problems,
All you have to do is call, because I know you’d do the same for me.

If there’s ever a time when you feel like no one cares,
Just remember I’m the one person who will always care.
Nothing is ever going to stop us from being friends,
Because I’m not going to let that happen.
