tease, poke, and pull,
Twist my words till I feel like a fool.
grin, chase, and play,
Laughing at what you do and say.
sadness, happiness, up and down,
In you a true friend is what I've found.
of encouragement, shoulders to cry,
You've helped me find my wings to fly.
gangs, strength in numbers,
Walking down the street as others stare with wonder.
boys, love, and now boyfriends,
All have gone to different ends.
yet similar, love and hate,
"Friends forever" is surely our fate.
and whole, full and part,
Now and forever you'll be in my heart.
