About the Poem

Although I enjoy poetry I do not have a lot of experience in writing poetry. As the rain was hitting the windows of my house and I was probing my most deepest thoughts, I remembered someone very dear to me who has provided comfort and strength to me in wading through the rocky waters of life. My Best Friend.


As I look
Beyond the ripples of my reflections
To examine my inner self;
The ripples begin to fade . . .
As the reflection lays beside me
Grasping my hand,
The inner warmth shields me
And the vision of my reflection appears
I see you. My Friend.

You are one of the few people who understand the real meaning of friendship! Thank you for this poem!
This poems says what I could not say. Few words but very powerful. Thanks
Just those few words got me instantly choked up. Friendship truly is a beautiful gift and this poem captures perfectly the profound connections that I feel with some of my closest friends.
It is short yet sweet and it defines the true meaning of friendship.
I posted your poem on this weeks newsletter in my community thanks!
Beautiful imagery and such wonderful insight. Thank you.
So compact, yet so full of meaning this poem is. It describes what I feel about a new friend with whom I am intimate, but we haven't shared commitment or the words "I love you."
This poem is actually the best way to describe a true friend. IT opens up inside you and explains the un-explainable! I LOVE IT WITH A DEEP PASSION!
Such simple words expressing so much.very much the style I try to emulate.
This is an amazing poem which has amazing feeling behind it. I think it summarizes real friendship.
Awesome poem. i don't know much about poetry, but this one stuck out!
