An Apparent Friendship

I can think of but one thing
that can help me through my day,

and that's the fact we are so close
my greatest blessing to come my way.

I often wonder what I did
to deserve such a true, close friend;

some might conclude I'm just a lucky guy
by how much quality time we spend.

A good relationship takes serious effort
from both of the parties involved,

we've spent a lot of time learning together
that any problem can be solved !

We try and keep expectations low
and to have an understanding view,

towards everything life hurls our way
so we can focus on all that's true.

I so cherish your existence
and all we've been allowed to share;

you are my best friend, and my mother
a combination that's truely rare !
