You are my best friend.

The finest, most amazing, and compatible.

Of all my friends,

You are the best.

"You are my best friend" I whisper

Softly, carefully

This statement is a precious gift,

One that must never be handled carelessly.

"You are my best friend" whispered

Because I don't want the others,

to feel less than.

To feel that they are not amazing,

Because they are.

Their talented, wonderful, each precious.

In their own unique way.

"You are my best friend" I whisper

Then turn to the next

"You are my best friend"

And the next

"You are my best friend"

Because why must I have only one?
