I heard this on the Prairie Home Companion, Sonnet Episode in April 2008:
"To My Best Friend"
by Margaret Cook of Middlebury, IN
I wish you weren't so far away,
I love you more than words can say.
We met when we were in first grade.
Hopscotch, jump rope and tag we played.
At recess time we traded lunch,
Walked home in winter's snowy crunch.
Each other's secrets we did keep,
The trust we had was true and deep.
The boys we loved became young men,
Down wedding aisles we followed them.
Beside your grave I stand today
And hope that you can hear me say
If I could do it all again,
I'd still choose you for my best friend.
