24: Best Friends

From Chicken Soup for the Soul: Just Us Girls

Best Friends

Somewhere on this planet is your best friend. Find that person.

~Omar Kiam

My best friend knows me well,

And reads me like a book.

She knows when there is something wrong

By taking just one look.

She also reads between the lines,

When I’ve got things to share.

She listens without judging me

And lets me know she cares.

She tells me what I need to hear,

I know it’s for my good.

Otherwise, I’d never change

Or do the things I should.

She laughs when I am happy,

And cries when I am hurt.

She stands firm and takes my side

When others dish out dirt.

Our friendship is forever,

It’s priceless and won’t end.

I’m absolutely sure of this

’Cause I’m also her best friend.

~Lydia Gomez Reyes
