Met my best friend at college when we shared a house
A good little Catholic, quiet as a church mouse
Eventually we had to have ‘the talk’
Groceries don’t grow in the cupboard, toilets about to walk!

We cried and we laughed, talked through the night
We became closer so glad that she didn’t take fright.
I went onto work with more studies in sight
As she took ordination to serve others

Now she’s married with five smart kids
And we email most days
We try to support each other in so many ways
She nursed me when my health was poor

Works full-time but still feeds the homeless
Loves cooking,  op shops and gumtree
Active in her parish, a very busy bee
Yet she always finds time for me!

Her kids give me tech support galore
On her and her family I can depend for sure
Unconditional care her essential core
No one could  ask for any more!

She did ask me to say that I do the same for her.   Please share something about your best friend?
