I Am Your Only Friend This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   I am you, and you are me.

I walk with you wherever you go;

I played with you in childhood,

And work with you in adulthood;

I see what you see,

But I see it clearer;

I hear what you hear,

But I hear it louder;

I feel what you feel,

But I feel it deeper.

When you were a child you would heed my counsel,

But as you've grown you've drifted away from me.

Yet every day you creep closer to me;

True friends shall be reunited on the other side;

What you fear most will bring you home to me.

But first the years will teach you

That anyone can laugh with you,

But only I will cry with you:

I am your only friend.
