All I Needed

A friend was all I wanted
Was all I waited for
A friend to back me up
After everyone walked out the door

Someone to be there for me
A friend to help me through
The fears in life I have to face
When alone, I didn't know what to do

One single friend to bring me light
To share my happiness and sorrows
One single soul to make my day
To live with me my tomorrow

A friend is all I needed
Finding a friend was what I lived for
But now I realize I had you along
And Im not looking, anymore

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
