The Best Friend

With a best friend I can laugh all day, with no problems in my way.

You help me when I'm down, you’ll never let me frown.

We can be so far apart, but you’ll always be in my heart.

Without you by my side, all I can do is cry.

With you I don’t have to run or hide, or even tell horrible lies.

This is to my best friend in the whole world I don’t know how I would live without her.
