My Friend

I wish I could keep
all the good feelings
you've ever given me
safe inside a bottle.

Every time I needed a
smile, a joke, a hug,
all I'd have to do is take
the lid off that bottle
and experience again all the
caring you've shared with me.

It would be my very own treasure
of sweetness and tenderness.
It would be like holding
our friendship in my hand.
