Favorite Quote:
Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, and today is gift, that is why it is called the present!

Friendship has no limits,
No reservations needed.
It's ever lasting and strong,
It's mans greatest bond.

It's not just two people gossiping,
No, It's so much more than that.
It's trust, love, and friendship,
Something every person wishes to have.

A true friend is one you can call,
Even at two a.m. only to cry.
Someone who will love you no matter what,
and someone that will never truly say goodbye.

A true friend is one that knows all your secrets,
But will never tell or judge.
A person that will be there during a bad time,
And will help you eat two pounds of fudge.

Someone that will try everything once,
Just to see you smile.
For my best friend I would do anything,
Even travel thousands of miles.

A true friend is family,
Though no blood related.
Someone who doesn't knock first,
And shows up unanticipated.

A true friend is love and care,
A friend like this is near impossible to find.
Someone that positively influences you,
I was lucky to have found mine.

Though she was older,
She was someone I could talk to.
Someone who brought out the best in me,
And someone I could trust with anything.

A true friend is there,
Even when physically not.
A person that lives forever,
deep within your heart.

The author's comments:
When I first joined my current church I was around 11 years old. I made a great friend. She was about 40 and had cancer. In early 2010 she passed away when i was 17. I wrote this in her memory.

This poem is beautiful. It makes me think of my own best friend. 

My favorite lines are "But will never tell or judge. A person that will be there during a bad time, And will help you eat two pounds of fudge."

Those lines are so cute, and I commend you for putting a little humor into your poem. It brightens it up and makes it fun to read.
