I was so sheltered.
Showed me how to survive high school.
Make-up and fashion,
Once a dark labyrinth of
Confusing products and social rules,
Became as clear as sunshine
When you taught me
How to present the image I want.
The dating game was an intricate web
That you patiently untangled,
Until I could see the beautiful network
Of love and interdependent relationships.
You helped me embrace my inner geek,
Because I knew nothing other than studying.
You shared with me fantastic books,
And I shared with you study tips.
We planned party after party;
Even our Sweet Sixteen we held together.
Every time we are together,
I can always count on having a friend,
Even when life throws us curve balls.
I am the girl I am today because of you.
I am so happy to not only to have
A study partner,
A partner in crime.
