My Friend

My Friend

A Poem by JohnnyB

Hello again, my dearest friend,
Do you think we could take a walk?
My mind is troubled, the day has been long,
I would like to relax and talk:

You put me at ease when I am with you,
You don't laugh when you see tears,
You give me the chance to calm myself,
You relieve my innermost fears;

We don't have much time, you and I,
It seems we seldom have time alone,
Times like this are rare indeed,
When I can have you for my own;

You always listen when I am troubled,
and you never ever butt in,
I never have trouble explaining to you,
and I always know where to begin;

Most people would say that I am crazy,
for spending this time with you,
To talk like this and claim to be sane,
is something that most wouldn't do;

But I'm not ashamed one little bit,
'cause I know that you understand,
After I've spent some time with you,
My outlook begins to expand;

I know that you would never betray me,
Our talks will always remain,
between only us, forevermore,
I know you'd never cause me pain;

Well, my friend, I guess I should go,
It seems I have so much to do,
Try to be patient for a little while,
Then I'll be back to spend time with you.

The punctuation throughout made it very easy to follow and emphasized your voice. Looping back to the word "you" periodically kept the theme strong, however you didn't overdue it. Despite it not being quite the point I think you were trying to make, the piece illustrated a conversation that could be occurring inside oneself. Speaking of a loss of ones self and how despite everything, you will always be there at the end of the day.
