About the Poem
This poem, written when I was 13 years old, was for one of best friends - to let him know exactly what he was to me and why I needed him in my life.
What You Are To Me
|by Bernice Ellrick|
|I am a rose, you are my thorns,
clutching to me, protecting me.
I am the sun, you are my rays,
helping me to shine and to be all that I can.
I am a lake, you are my water,
filling me with ideas, dreams, and hopes for the future.
I am a tree, you are my leaves,
sharing who and what I am
and becoming an important part of my life.
I am a heart, you are my beat,
beating rhythmically to my happiness,
my fear, my sadness, my excitement
I am me and you are with me,
to share all that I am,
to share life, love, and happiness.
