So, Elizabeth Jennings spoke for me!

"I fear it's very wrong of me
And yet I must admit
When someone offers friendship
I want the whole of it.
I don't want everybody else
To share my friends with me.
At least I want one special one
Who indisputably,
Likes me much more than all the rest
Who's always on my side,
Who never cares what others say
Who lets me come and hide
Within his shadow, in his house -
It doesn't matter where -
Who lets me simply be myself,
Who's always, always, there."

"You cannot fake anything if you are writing serious poetry"

I first read that quote of hers when I was 11. Tremendous woman she was.

oh she is...
i read this poem when i was teaching it to my student off his english book and i just got caught up in it!

so simple, yet she covers everything a friend would want, and a friend should give!

we all do, even those who might have said sharing is caring. My friend? I want all for myself. :D

Simple thought, nice rhyming scheme, and a nice poem.
