My Best Friend Saved My Life

If you don't have friendship,
you don't have a life
Before I met her,
I came close with a knife

I thought i was worthless,
no more than dirt
But she made me realize,
how much i was worth

She said it wasn't healthy,
to cut deep in my skin
She said that i shouldn't,
keep it all bottled in

She made me feel good and proud of myself,
She stopped me from harming and even killing myself

Because of her,
I put down the knife
My best friend Carleen,
she saved my life

That is so sweet and shows how much of a true friend she is and how much she cares about you . Many people aren't blessed with true friends , so your more than lucky to have a friend like that :) Please comment and rate my work :)
