She has dark hair
a determined look

She lives with great purpose

We met when we were 
the people we are now
but we grew

We met when we needed
a dose of encouragement 
to get through

The two of us
we spend a lot of 
trying to get through

I knew in my heart
when she called me her 
she was the only 
I would need

That hasn’t changed

We may be twenty-somethings
taking it day-by-day
living in an apartment
looking for something more

But I’ll tell you this: 

My best friend is stronger 
than the hell I’ve put her through,
she’s given me more
than I knew I needed

and let me be clear,
regardless of what we
might be looking for,

I have all I need right here.
