If You Want to Be My Friend
A beautiful poem for friendship. Please read.
Here’s a short poem for you, if you want to be my friend.
I’ll say it now (but just one time), and hope you understand.
At first I may be quiet, shy, or uncertain how to act.
Please know I am just nervous, a bit insecure, in fact.
But once I leave my shell, we’ll discover who the other is.
With people who are close to me, I’m much more talkative.
Now, friendship is a push and pull, always a give and take.
If we cannot find a balance, our bond will be at stake.
I can’t spend all my energy on someone who doesn’t see:
Friendships best endure when built on reciprocity.
I fiercely love my friends, and keep them by my side.
The make me proud and make me laugh; they keep me honest and alive.
We could be partners in crime, or mellow classroom pals.
