My best friend
YOU are my best friend.
I came to you when I was just 18 years old you took me in without prejudice.
You kept me safe and sheltered through my teenage years when I was somewhat of a rebel. You are my best friend. Over time we have both changed, aged and reinvented ourselves time and time again, you have never judged me. You are my best friend. There have been times I have left you, you welcomed me back with open arms no questions asked you kept me warm. You are my best friend. At times I have been alone but never felt alone knowing you are there a steady constant in my life. Even though I think I know you well you surprise me with your beauty and I discover new things about you every day.
My best friend, my guide, my keeper, my daughter’s teacher.
I love you Port Douglas and I thank you, for you are my best friend.
