My New Best Friend

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 politely

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 the my new best friend

Was nothing but a mirror.
