The Perfect Friend

The Perfect Friend © Today I found a friend Who knew everything I felt She knew my weakness And the problems I’ve been dealt. She understood my wonders And listened to my dreams, She listened to how I felt about life and love And knew what it all means. Not once did she interrupt me Or tell me I was wrong She understood what I was going through And promised she'd stay long. I reached out to this friend, To show her that I care To pull her close and let her know How much I need her there. I went to hold her hand To pull her a bit nearer And I realized this perfect friend I found Was nothing but a mirror Written by Shannen Wrass Copyright © 1995 Shannen Wrass. All Rights Reserved

Shannen, excellent poem! I am a songwriter. Do you mind if I use "The Perfect Friend" for a song?

Awesome ending. That said, sometimes the only friend you do have, is yourself. But, being good to yourself will allow you to be good to others, which will test those who will treat you the same. "Do unto others", as it's said...excellent writing!
