What Friends Do Best
You have done so much for me
in the short time Iíve known you.
Your words always dry my tears
and then have me laughing too.
Iíve looked at much through your eyes,
viewed devoid of rosy hue,
learned much of life and friendship
from all that you say and do.
You have given me the gift
of love, unconditional.
No strings, no rules, no judgements,
there to catch me if I fall.
Of all the things youíve shown me,
all the teachings you impart,
the most precious thing Iíve seen
is my corner of your heart.

For a wonderful friend who has taught me that loving myself is as important as being loved. I love you back.
