About the Poem

Friendship can be a difficult concept to fully grasp, but I think that's largely because we don't put enough emphasis on its importance. We experience a lot of different relationships in our lives. But none, I think, are any more important than when two people come together as Best Friends.

Best Friends

One hand in mine, my hand in thine,
We walk through life's stark shadow,
Two as one and one combine,
To fight the night's dark battle.

My strength to thee, and thine to mine,
Our fervor never fallow,
Two friends are one by co-design
To face our common morrow.

I pledge my trust, thy trust is mine,
Through life's deep joy and sorrow,
One for all and all align
And this our common motto.

Best friend of mine, and mine to thine,
No greater love to follow,
Two as one and one define
A friendship to the marrow.
