A birthday poem

Hello my avid reader. Next Sunday is my roommate's birthday and I wrote her this poem. Tell me what you think!

My roommate
By Amanda Robin

My roommate showed just how big
Her heart is when I first
Moved in.
She gave me the bigger
Of the two bedrooms
And the deeper dresser.

My roommate showed just how caring
In her soul she is
When she worried
All night
Because I didn’t tell
Her that I was not coming home
Until eleven – thirty at night.

My roommate showed just how friendly
Her personality is
When she made me feel
Welcome talking with her guest
In our cozy living room.

My roommate showed just how forgiving
Her spirit is
When she didn’t mind if
I drank her milk or ruined
Her pretty towel.

My roommate showed just how special
she has become
because she is now

My friend.


  1. Sounds good to me was funny reading this poem while listening to the thumping beat of Stronger by Kanye West. LOL. I loved it! Great song.

  2. Hi Afton,

    Glad you liked the poem. It is funny about reading with Stronger in the background! Glad you liked the music I picked out. I try to change it from time to time.

    Blessings with hugs,
