About the Poem

This poem is about my best friend. Though we are far apart, she will always be the most important person in my life. She was always there for me, there to encourage me, there to comfort me. She was my biggest supporter in both the good and the bad. She helped me find self-acceptance and she showed me how wonderful loving others unconditionally is.

We were at boarding school together until November 1999. Sadly we don't live close by each other so I haven't seen her in a long time. I cherish my memories of her so much. I will never give up hope that our paths are destined to cross again. She was the sweetest part of my life for so long, I miss her positive outlook on life, her ready smile and most of all the way she genuinely cared about me. She will always have a special place in my heart.

Ode To My True Friend

The day I met you
I found a friend -
And a friendship that
I pray will never end.

Your smile - so sweet
And so bright -
Kept me going
When day was as dark as night.

You never ever judged me,
You understood my sorrow.
Then you told me it needn't be that way
And gave me the hope of a better tomorrow.

You were always there for me,
I knew I could count on you.
You gave me advice and encouragement
Whenever I didn't know what to do.

You helped me learn to love myself
You made life seem so good.
You said I can do anything I put my mind to
And suddenly I knew I could.

There were times when we didn't see eye to eye
And there were days when both of us cried.
But even so we made it through:
Our friendship hasn't yet died.

Circumstances have pulled us apart,
We are separated by many miles.
Truly, the only thing that keeps me going
Is my treasured memory of your smile.

This friendship we share
Is so precious to me,
I hope it grows and flourishes
And lasts unto infinity.

You are so extra-special to me
And so this to you I really must tell:
You are my one true friend,
My Guardian Angel.

Our friendship is one-in-a-million
So let's hold on to it and each other.
We cannot let this chance of pure bliss fly away
For there will never be another.

I love you.
I will always love you.
