Cheers, Best Friend | a poem on friendship

Best friends


To the ones who allow you to be at your peaks and your pits.

The ones that take the knives out of your back and heal your wounds


To the ones that laugh with you uncontrollably when all you can think to do is cry

And they are there for that, too.

To wipe your tears when you need a shoulder

Or give you that push when you need a hand.

The ones that make silly faces in the camera beside you,

But never AT you.

Because within those four sides of the frame lies the snapshot of a thousand memories.

We say cheers to you, best friend.

Because without the ones like you, we’d lose a sense of home.
