Today I met a great new friend

Who knew me right away;

It was funny how she understood

All that I had to say

She listened to my problems

She listened to my dreams;

We talked about love and life,

She’d been there, too –it seems!

I never once felt judged by her

She knew just how I felt;

She seemed to just accept me

With all the faults I’d been dealt.

She didn’t interrupt me

Or need to have her  say;

She just listened very patiently

And didn’t go away

I wanted her to understand

How much this meant to me;

But as I went to hug her

Something startled me.

I put my arms in front me

And tried to pull her nearer;

And realized that my new best friend

Was nothing but a mirror.
