A Real Friend

Sudha Khristmukti

I love you for the way
you are both strong
and kind.
For the way you laugh
and cry,
feeling life
from deep down inside.
For the way you are sometimes distant
but never too far.
For reaching out
and searching for
and bringing out
the best in me.
For your openness, your honesty,
your love of simple things.
For looking into my heart
and touching my innermost thoughts.
For the trust I can place in you.
For the understanding and encouragement
I always find in you.
For all the joy you bring into my life
because you are my friend.
