About the Poem
This is a poem written to a teenage girl that passed away, from her best friend and boyfriend. She helped him become in love with life when he hated every second of it.
An Old Friend
|I remember you as a candle in the night
That helped me see all things bright.
My love for you was not hidden,
It made my hate become ridden.
You were my savior, my help in life,
When I attempted suicide, you took the knife.
Now distance and time have taken it over,
But my love for you now shines bolder.
You do not know what you've done for me,
But I tell you now, you answered my plea.
