My Best Friend

by Rachel Williams

There are all sorts of friends
Some better than others
But the best in the world
Are the ones we call mothers

She holds me at night
When I'm too scared to sleep
And she teaches me things
That forever I'll keep

She helps me to learn
About right, about wrong
And she shows me just how
To be brave and be strong

She's more than just pretty
She's beautiful and fine
She's the best in the world
And I'm glad that she's mine

No matter how far
Or how long it will be
Forever and ever
My best friend she will be
