I thought of you when I was lonely.
I smiled at your picture in my mind.
I laughed with you and we shared our vented feelings-
our Joys, our Sorrows, our Angers.
I wish we could walk side by side
all the way and back again.
I wish we were flowers on the same stem,
not differents flowers so we cannot be removed.
Yet I will someday walk away from you,
or you from I,
and though we won't like it we'll take it in stride
and I'll think of you when I'm lonely.
I will want you to see all that I've done,
my accomplishments, my soul.
So you can say that you are still proud of me-
Proud to be my friend.
