Best Friends

Best friends can communicate without speaking
Have no fear of their secrets leaking
Know you are sad without being told
Are far rarer and treasured above pure gold

You live in their heart, and they in you
As each new day starts, you know they feel it too
Even if seperated by years or many miles
You can sooth each other's tears or bring a smile

A best friend sees, beyond your skin
And know what there, lies within
Your hopes, your dreams, the other things
Others miss, without even wondering

They feel your joy and also your pain
No greater friend could you hope to gain
Than one who'll be there, through it all
Than one who'll answer, when you call

    I don't really know what a best friend is except that I married mine. I have made many acquaintances but I don't think that is the same. Love your write anyway. God Bless. D.

    Luck on the contest Donna! I so agree with you on the part of "communication through silence". It's a treasure to have and should not be underestimated!
