<opt> <anon I1="BLANK" I2="BLANK">1Friendship Friendship is the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words. George Eliot The Friend That You've Outgrown Here's to the friend that you've outgrown,The one whose name is left unknown.The one who wiped away your tears,And sought to hold your hand,When others turned the other way,No beginning, just an end. She's the one you turned to,The one that you called friend.She laughed with you, she cried with you,And felt it was her duty,To remind you of your worth,And all your inner beauty. When others' eyes could only dwell,Upon your exposed outer shell.They saw a fat girl steeped in braces,Not seeing you they turned their faces.But she was there to whisper,When others didn't care. She held your secrets in her heart,That friends like you could share.You never had to be alone,But now she is, 'cause you've outgrownHer for those others whose laughs you share,As you run carefree through the air. Time has eased your form and face,But she's the one who knew your graceWhen those who you now call your friendSaw no beginning . . . only end. C. S. Dweck My Friend, Forever When we were merely little girls, still full of innocence and wonder, I tied your shoes and made sure your lip wasn't bleeding. 'Best friends since third grade,' we've always said. We've been to hell and back, with our bleeding hearts and tampered souls.We've watched each other slip helplessly into the realms of addiction, holding mercilessly onto one another's palms, simply praying that it was just some horrid nightmare.You held me with your soothing tones over the phone when my heart first broke in pain. You told me it would be okay and that I was much too strong to let some stupid boy topple me over the edge.When I felt as though no one could possibly understand the torment going on within my soul, you were always there to reassure me that one day it would pass, and that I could always turn to you. The pain I held back with others, I could share with you and you with me.I suppose all I want is for you to know that I know you've been through far too much for seventeen years, and that you are the most beautiful person I have ever known. The distance that separates us now doesn't change my love for you, my sweetest friend. I can feel your thoughts from miles away and when I close my eyes I can see you there in all of your beauty. We will rise above this. We will travel the world, write poetry and dazzle the hearts of everyone we meet. I will never let go of your palms, my friend, and I will always be there to lift you up and tie your shoes. Best friends since third grade to hell and back. Love always, MellMelissa Malloy There Is No End in Friend Lauren and I met during summer camp after fifth grade. We were stargazing. She was looking for Orion and I was lying on my back searching the night sky for the Little Dipper when she tripped over me and fell ba Excerpted from Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul IV: More Stories of Life, Love and Learning by Jack L.
