A Friend as Good as Me


So what makes up a friend?

Well it’s different for everyone.

A criteria should be put in place,

But that’s just my opinion.

I don’t think I’ll ever find a friend as good as me.


The greatest quality in a friend is loyalty

But it’s desperately hard to find.

The reason for this is because people are selfish

Therefore be careful with friends whom you become aligned.

I don’t think I’ll ever find a friend as good as me.


I’ve been told not to have such high expectations,

People are going to let you down

Because let’s face it, we’re all imperfect creations.

But I believe despite all that, a true friend can still be found.

I don’t think I’ll ever find a friend as good as me.


But I’m not asking for perfection, you see,

Just have an interest in my life.

For I am sick of maintaining a friendship

That gives nothing but internal strife.

I don’t think I’ll ever find a friend as good as me.


Friendship should be treasured rather than maintained,

A two-way street and not a highway.

A true friend must be loyal and dependable,

Otherwise the relationship is doomed to fail.

Friendship requires effort and forgiveness,

Remember these helpful hints.

I hope to one day find a friend as good as me.
