I ran across this on the internet by "Author Unknown" who is nearly as prolific and productive across all genres as "Anonymous".
A Friend …

Accepts you as you are.
Believes in you.
Calls you just to say "hi."
Doesn't give up on you.
Envisions the whole of you (even the unfinished parts).
Forgives your mistakes.
(and it goes on through the alphabet)
Pick any subject and create something similar.

Maybe it's the subject of the example, but I can hear a teacher say "Write your own version about friends." Well, if she's talking in your head too, shush her. You're not in school. No one's going to scowl at you if you choose to write about Dog Poop! ;-)
Dog Poop ...

Always smells.
Broils on the sidewalk.
Clings to your shoe.
Draws the noses of dogs.
For X, "Author Unknown" wrote both "Xplains things you don't understand" and "XOXOXOXO".

You can see a nicely formatted version of "A Friend".
