To My Best Friend

Poem By natalie schmitt

The summer we met how could I have known
I saw you that first time standing alone
I was new to the crowd and a little bit scared
I needed a friend who really cared
I never thought it would be you who'd come when I was down
I always felt if my life flooded you'd just let me drown

I don't know how it happened,
you were suddenly my best friend
I sat and listened to you cry
Your broken heart I tried to mend

You told me about the girl you loved
I told you be patient to look up above
I said to trust God to really pray
You said that you had, so I prayed everyday

I asked God to guide you and help you to see
I told you you could always depend on me
You got what you wanted but she doesn't treat you right
You both argue and she always starts a fight

One night we were talking about something she'd done
I had known I liked you but then it hit me all in one
Suddenly I knew I loved you more than life itself
and I broke down and cried all by myself

When I finally told you you didn't seem surprised
I stood in front of you drying my eyes
I love you more than words can say
I think about you everyday

You are my best friend and I hate to see you cry
I try to hide my feelings believe me I try
I know I'll never measure up to what you see in her,
she's the luckiest girl I've ever known
But just know you're never on your own
I love you, my best friend

Dear Dad


I'm beginning to understand life less and less everyday. When I was
young, I use to believe that I had actually had the world all figured out,

Love You Lovin Me

As we walk along the moonlit beach
Watching and listening to the waves gently roll in
Underneath the vast, clear star- filled sky
We stop and stare into each other s eyes,


Life is kind of like the ocean,
You can see how it starts, but not the way it ends.
So lets just take things as they come to us,
And be happy we're best friends.


I never thought my life could past before my eyes
I never thought tears can come before my cries

But I now know the truth never lies
