A Good Friend

I think I was about 14 when I wrote this. I must to my embarrassment admit that I had fallen in love with a guy friend of my French penfriend’s older sister. From what I remember though, Stéphane was rather good looking!

’Tis hard to find a friend as good as you
A friend to cheer you up when you are blue
A friend to understand your feelings well
A friend to whom your secrets you can tell

We are different nationalities
But together as one
Our friendship
C’est très bon
