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

My best friend Carleen was always there for me. She stopped me from comitting suicide. She helped me feel good. :D

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 :)
