About the Poem

When Becky and I got into a fight, I got very upset. It just happened that the next day I was going to a church camp over the weekend with some of the teens in my Sunday school class.

Here I met another friend, Katie, who was having a different problem. We both connected with each other that weekend. She completely understood what was happening between Becky and I, and I completely understood what was going on Between her and Charlie.

We're best friends now, and we haven't said our mutual promise out loud. We don't need to.

Promise

As you sit in silence,
Wondering why
I'll be your shoulder to cry on
Until your tears run dry.

When you've been hurt,
And can't believe what they've done
If you need someone to talk to
I'll be the one.

If a close friend hurts you,
And you don't understand
Remember I'm here,
I'll lend a helping hand.

Burdens are lighter when carried by two,
And I just want you to know
I'm here for you.

minatsu
This poem is awesome! I have been in trouble with my friends lately and my best friend has been staying with me all the time and when I cried, she was with me, when I was in a very sad mood, she was with me. She always makes me relief. So, when I read this poem, I promised that I would be with her when she is in trouble and I would be the one who protect her. That's why I like this poem.

I really like this poem. Right now, expecialy, it reminds me of somethings going on in my best friend's life, and how I'm always reminding here I'm here for her forever and always. The poem may be short but to those who can relate to it know its so much more then just written words. I give this poem the highest score u can get. Good work!
