My new best friend.

Location

 

Today I met a great new friend

Who knew me right away.

It was funny how she understood

All I had to say.

 

She listened to my problems,

She listened to my dreams.

We talked about love and life.

She’d been there, too, it seems.

 

I never once felt judged by her.

She knew just how I felt.

She seemed to just accept me

And all the problems I’d been dealt.

 

She didn’t interrupt me,

Or need to have her say.

She just listened very patiently

And didn’t go away.

 

I wanted her to understand

How much this meant to me.

But as I went to hug her,

Something startled me. 

 

I put my arms in front of me

And went to pull her nearer

And realized that my new best friend,

Was nothing but a mirror.
