Best Friends - Poem by Terry Donovan

The best of friends are those you never meet
But have a lot in common from afar,
The sort who make an empty day complete
With words alone that reach you where you are.
The sort who let you know you’re not alone
And make you feel that life is well worth while,
With words on paper, greetings on the phone
Or something on the screen to make you smile.
Best friends are always with you in your mind
And let you know that you remain in theirs,
They’ll listen when you’re ready to unwind
And let you share their worries and their cares.
Best friends stand by you though you stand apart.
And all they give or want comes from the heart.
