The Perfect Friend©

Today I found a friend

Who knew everything I felt

She knew my every weakness

And the problems I’ve been dealt

She understood my wonders

And listened to my dreams

She listened to how I felt about life and love

And knew what it all means

Not once did she interrupt me

Or tell me I was wrong

She understood what I was going through

And promised she'd stay long

I reached out to this friend

To show her that I care

To pull her close and let her know

How much I need her there

I went to hold her hand

To pull her a bit nearer

And I realized this perfect friend I found

Was nothing but a mirror

I loved the flow of this poem. The rhyme made everything feel so smooth.

I look forward to reading more.

Bravo @shannenwrass ................. clever delivery and set up in this poem............. gave the illusion of you helping a friend right until the last line........... then an artistic spin to say the least.
