A Good Friend

I saw you walking down the hall
I knew your face was new,
But I didn't even think at all,
That somewhere in the future I'd actually care for you.
I lay awake at night,
Thinking the day's' beginning to end,
I look at people happy smiling so bright,
And I think of you, my friend.
As months passed I started to open up,
And I could clearly see,
You became the one I knew I could trust
And you brought out another side of me
So now my friend when I look back,
I see my joy, my pain, my happy, and my sad,
But I want you to know who was there for me and had my back
You, the best friend I ever had.
