A real friend (Poem No 76 from 100 poems for my sweetheart by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

You know me more than
Any other;
I know you more than
Any other;
Can there be any doubt,
That you are my best friend?
I have no other but you.
Each time I turn around,
It is you;
When the going is good,
It is you by me;
Your smiles and laughter
Give me joy;
When the going is hard,
When tears invade my eyes,
Or like a torrent pour down,
You are there for me;
With your love
You wipe them;
Keeping my eyes dry;
You are my best friend;
A real friend so rare
To come by;
You are a real friend.
