My Best Friend

My Best Friend – Poem by Leonard Dabydeen

8 June is Best Friend’s Day
A good friend listens to your adventures, a best friend makes them with you.

My Best Friend

She carries me in her mind
wrapped in a cozy blanket
just to keep me warm;
my secrets I cannot hide
or try re-inventing
when her nearness
exudes a perfume of awareness;
she knows it all
sometimes I think
like a common thief:
every crevice, crack, and corner
where I heave a sigh
she raises a brow –
I am here for you, she says;
not only a shoulder
to lean on, but to embrace
heart to heart
as God only knows
she is my best friend.
