the poets of Eugene Field: Macayle

Best Friends

by Macayle

.

They help you when

your feelings are

     down

They make you feel better

when you are having a bad day

They play hide and seek with you

in the dark

huddled together to keep

from being seen

giggle in the darkness

until the light beams

and that means

you’ve been found

Friendship finds you

like a flashlight

in the dark

A warm feeling

makes you cozy

Shine your light back

to Appreciate
