"My New Best Friend"

Today I met a great new friend
Who knew me right away
It was funny how she understood
All I had to say

She listened to my problems
She listened to my dreams
We talked about love and life
She’d been there, too, it seems

I never once felt judged by he
She knew just how I felt
She seemed to just accept me
And all the problems I’d been dealt

She didn’t interrupt me
Or need to have her say
She just listened very patiently
And didn’t go away

I wanted her to understand
How much this meant to me
But as I went to hug her
Something startled me

I put my arms in front of me
And went to pull her nearer
And realized that my new best friend
Was nothing but a mirror
