Best friends

Best friends are hard to find, harder to leave and impossible to forget,
If you are lucky, you might find one in a lifetime,
I am blessed with four.

I lean on them when I'm not strong,
They pick me up when I fall.
They are always there when I need them,
Keeping me centred when everything else is falling down around me.

They are the most amazing people,
Never judging, just accepting,
They look for the good in people, and find it.
They bring out the best in me,
And I would be lost without them.

They make the world a better place simply by living in it.
They stand by me no matter what,
No matter what I say or do,
No matter what I decide, they are there for me.

They tell me I can me more, and help me achieve it,
They are the light at the end of the tunnel,
The peace in a world of turmoil,
I wouldn't be where I am today without them,
I wouldn't be who I am today without them.

They know who they are,
I hold them in my heart,
And thank God for them every day.
They are simply: my best friends.
