When I was little

When I was little,

I used to believe in the concept of one best friend,

and then I started to become a woman.

And then I found out that if you allow your heart to

open up,

You will be shown the best, in many friends.

One friend is needed when you're going through things

with your partner.

Another friend is needed when you're going through

things with your parents.

Another will sit beside you in the bleachers as you

delight in your children and their activities.

Another when you want to shop, share, heal, hurt,

joke, or just be.

One friend will say, "Let's cry together,"

another, "Let's fight together, "

another, "Let's walk away together."

One friend will meet your spiritual need,

another your shoe fetish,

another your love for movies,

another will be with you in your season of confusion,

a nother will be your clarifier,

another the wind beneath your wings.

But whatever their assignment in your life,

on whatever the occasion,

on whatever the day,

or wherever you need them to meet you with their gym

shoes on and hair pulled back,

or to hold you back from making a complete fool of

yourself ...

those are your best friends.

It may all be wrapped up in one woman,

but for many, it's wrapped up in several...

one from 6th grade,

one from high school,

some from the college years,

a couple from old jobs,

on some days your mother,

on some days your neighbor,

on others, your sisters, cousins,

and on some days, your daughters.

On Dogster, they are spread out all over the world
