my friend.

do you know what is a best friend?
a best friend is a secret sharer,
a best friend is a great consultant,
a best friend is a comfort giver,
a best friend is like a diamond.
a best friend is always care,
a best friend is always share,
a best friend makes you smile,
a best friend is loving, caring, sweet and true
a best friend is someone just like you.
thanks for being my best friend for my lifetime.

    Rita, you are so right with this one. A little gem of a poem here. Best friends are something special and they even transcend their passing. I know that from experience because I lost my best friend a couple of years ago. But he is still here if I ever need him in my memory. Keep writing and I'll come back and read some more. Thanks for sharing this.

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
