I Need a Best Friend

by Maryam Atena
(London)

Lend me a gentle arm to hold me when I'm down

Pull a cheery smile to chase away my frown

I'd like a pair of ears to listen to my fears
I'd like somebody's hands to wipe away my tears

I need a soothing voice to help me get to sleep
To say things will be better, whilst I weep

A heart to lock my secrets would mean a lot to me
A laugh to keep me going and set my poor soul free

Make my wish come true since I'll wish it till the end
It's all I need right now, I just need a best friend.
