"Best Friend," Maria Belyayeva, Sixth Grade, IS 24

I can always talk to you
For you are my best friend
Tell you all my thoughts and secrets
There's no reason to pretend
You don't care if something's silly
But forever care for me
A magic bond holds us together
A bond that anyone can see
You share my sorrow and my rapture
My embarrassment and fear
You help me through my troubles
Make my life feel crystal clear
On the path that you are taking
I can lead you round a bend
You will always understand me
For you are my best friend.
