Before I met you,
Friendship was just a word to me.
When I meet you,
Friendship now carries significant meaning.
You are the sunshine that brightens my heart,
Sweeps the sorrow off my mind.
Every meal tastes better when I am with you,
And your presence makes me feel alive.
We fought, we laughed,
And we cheered for each other's success.
Our friendship is clearly defined
As the best thing that we ever possess.
If one day we are apart,
We will be each other's North Star.
To guide the way home through the sky,
And shine for our love and for who we are.

This Poems Story
I am Helen Zhang. I come from China. Honestly, this is my first time writing poems and I cannot believe I got entered in the semi-final round of a poetry competition. I have to thank my English teacher, because if she did not ask me to get into the contest, I wouldn't of had this opportunity. My family gave lots of ideas about the poem. They really supported me to write it. I used to think that success is hard, but this is the first step to it.
