At My Best
No matter what we do and no matter what we say

When our days are good and when there in dismay

They hold us when weíre sad and laugh when we are happy

They fight to protect our smiles and sometimes go all sappy

Our friends are always there through it all they stay

To help us as people to grow and on lifeís path show us the way

They never let us go no matter how much we push

And when we are down on ourselves they are the first to tell us ssshhh!

Sometimes we can cut them and really make them mad

Sometimes they can hurt us and really make us sad

But friends will be friends and that means forever and a day

With my special friend Iíd have it no other way

I know I am not the best at anything I do

And I know that I can be such a jerk to you

I have my imperfections they are there to see

But if I could take them away would I still be me?

But I hate to hurt you it really pains me so

I guess because of who I am sometimes it doesnít show

But it cuts me like a knife the wounds taking long to go

I am most of the problem thatís something that I know

Friend just know Iím trying each and every day

But I seem to keep on failing each and every way

Giving up is not an option well not one I would take

Seeing you smile again would be like icing on a cake

Life is like a washing machine the emotions build up high

Then someone opens the door and it all begins to fly

Onto this floor of life my apologies will rest

Because only when we are happy together

Is when Iím at my best

Author's Notes:
It's hard for me to take that the one person I hate to see get hurt is the one that I am hurting the most, William Shakespeare said that True Love Never Did Run Smooth, well same can be said about good friendships and while I know this doesn't really make up for me being a jerk at times I hope it at least goes a little way towards making up for it. If all else fails I will show her how to drain the washing machine so she doesn't turn the kitchen to a swimming pool. Nate
