You've Got A Friend In Me

1. Thoughtful
2. Meticulous
3. Curious
4. Reserved
5. Loyal

When you first meet me, you might think I'm shy, quiet, obstinate, stuck-up, or even bitchy. And those five words describe me pretty well too.


You see, I don't let just anyone and everyone in. I have a very close knit circle of friends and only a very few get to ever know the real me, but once I decide to let down my guard and share myself, you will have a friend in me for life.

You can trust me to be faithful and true

You can trust me through and through

When you hurt, I hurt

I'm always here to comfort

I'm the friend you can call in the middle of the night

Tell me your troubles and I'll help you see the light

I may not always have the best advice to give

But I'll listen with an open mind and heart and always be supportive

When you need a friend, I'll be there

This I promise, this I swear

This post is for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop - Prompt #2 Describe yourself in five words. Choose one, and write a poem.

Very pretty.
This was very well put.
Although not quiet or reserved by any means... I too, don't get close to too many.
But the one's I do get close to, well, they might as well be family.
This was beautiful. Thank you.

I think it is so much better to have a small handful of close friends than a big circle of acquaintances. Beautifully written x

I doubt anyone who knows me would use such nice words to describe me. Including myself. I've got funny going for me though. I intend to hang onto that!

Hi Tonya, I think this was the hardest prompt! You did a great job with it. I am the same way to a degree - introverted at heart but also a people lover. Odd! A personality thing I took once described it best about me: "you often have a very humorous internal dialogue going about the world around you, you just don't say it out loud!" Blogging is resulting in me saying it (via writing) more than I used to!!

I'm a lot like you: quiet and reserved until I get to know you. I think a lot of people would call me a snob or a bitch :p

Lovely poem :)

I've learned that being quiet and shy translates into being a hateful wretch to most people. It just takes awhile to to get to know those of use who are reserved!

Just what a friend should be.

And a poet as well ;)

Like I've told you before, you can be hard to get to know but once you do, there is so much goodness and awesomeness in you! : ) Cute poem!
