Best Friend

By: Sara Nichol Mims

You are my best friend!
You have been, since I was 5 years old.
Nothing has changed between us but we've grown closer
It’s almost like we are sisters!

You always seem to know what to tell me
Whenever I am in any kind of situation.
It's like you know the answer to every question I ask you.
We both know every little detail of each other!

We have been neighbors, almost since I can remember
And now that I moved away… it's not the same
Though we do call each other quite often!
I can't walk next door and ask if I can borrow a shirt!

You can't help me with my homework
Or call and break up with my boyfriend anymore!
We can't wear the others cloths the next day to school
When we can't find anything to wear!

I guess what I'm trying to say is…
I am always here for you and nothing will ever change that!
Even if we do grow apart and you are in a trouble
And need someone to talk to-
You can count on me to be there for you!

I love you! You are my big sister, in my eyes!
I just wish you could have moved with me!
We will still be going to the same high school
But it’s never going to be the same again.
But my trust in you will never change
That will always be the same!

We will be old ladies and still be best friends
Sitting and yelling at our grandchildren to get out of the street
And they won't listen, so we have to chase after them!
Just like we do our little brother and sister!

I love you so much I am always here for you,
You are my big sister and, as your little sister,
I will always be here for you!
I love you and nothing will change that
…My friend/sister!
