Close friend


you'll never know how much i love you

nor know how much i care

when i was down and needy

you were a saint - right there


you hit the spot and let me talk

and say how bad i'd been

you showed me love and care

and asked of me - nothing!


with you my human diamond

i lightened up anew

and oh you make me laugh

and i can really laugh with you


i feel so close like i want to hug

though hate to think i'd offend

cos i never ever want to lose you

you've become a very close friend

          :) this is great! not too many people have this in their lives, and it is sad that they don't. I am lucky...I have two!
