My Friend

For my friend:

If I am having a rough morning, you support me.
If I need a boost in the afternoon, you lift me up.
You are here for me any time of day, any day I need you.

You provide comfort when I'm down.
You fill me with warmth.

I used to think I was too good for you.
I thought I needed fancy.
I thought I needed rich.

Now I know, it doesn't matter.
I'll take you just the way you are.

(Well, maybe not quite just the way you are.  I still need cream and sugar.)

Coffee, you are
My Friend.



  1. Ahhh...where would tired mommy's be without it?

  2. I keep trying to find the right coffee, the one I don't have to drown in cream and sugar to make overly sweet. For a while I enjoyed something from Starbucks, but I can't remember its name (I think I blocked it out when I added up how much I was spending each day).

  3. Haha! Hopping over from Mamakats:) Your poem made me laugh out loud!

  4. OMG I had no idea my coffee was cheating on me. Thank goodness there is so much love to go around. Love this. xo

  5. Arnebya: My favorite coffee is Caribou.

    Jenn and Casey: Thanks!

    Tracy: Yes, your coffee is seeing other people. Behind your back. :)


Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
