Love, your best friend

by emmerz   Oct 11, 2006

Your blond hair and glowing smile
The laugh that I could hear for miles
At first I thought of everything else
Until the night you introduced yourself

A year later, and I can hardly believe
We're as close as friends could be
I can call on you when things get strange
Or give you advice when you need a change

If anybody ever lets you down
I promise you I'll be around
And if any guy ever comes too close
I can assure you that he'll be toast

Because thats just what best friends do
Not just to thine self, but to the other, be true
I know that you will be the one
To tell me when to let go and have a little fun

Peanut butter and jelly, together at last
I can't believe this friendship has grown so fast
You've opened my eyes to sights unseen
And encouraged me to live my dreams

Thats what I need: a friend by my side
To push me forward when I want to hide
But one who'll always be there for me
To get me to see and to truly believe

Baby, it'll be you and me up high
Standing on each others shoulders, touching the sky
I'll be your umbrella in rainy day weather,
Just promise me we'll go to heaven together

** this is a poem I wrote for my best friend, Emily... enjoy all of you!**

    This was a really good poem. I agree with the other person about the word 'toast' sounding a little forced, but if I were you I wouldn't change it, because it sounds like a typical thing you might say to your best friend, so adds to the natural and realistic ability of this poem.

    ^This is the one stanza I did not like. It sounded like it was a forced rhyme. Over all everything seemd ok. The rhythem of the poem was a little rocky but keep writing and improving it was a very good poem though. 5/5
    God Bless.

    Aww that's something so sweet that you wrote for your friends. It's deep, and has loads of meaning.

    The flow was excellent. I really didn't seem to find that it was rocky at all. I just found one mistake:

    [Peanut butter and jelly, together at {last}
    Now I can safely say that this friendship will {last}]
    ^^You rhymed {last} with {last}. I wouldn't really call it rhyming, but in a rhyming poem, you just can't have the same two words. It just doesn't work out.

    But other than that, the imagery was great, and this poem really got to me. It made me think of how close my friends are with me, but that some are leaving to go to a different school. =( But I guess you can't have all that's in life, and I'll meet new friends, so it's all good lol. Well done. =) 5/5 xoxo
