    a secret, such a very precious thing
    showing someone felt they could bring
    what they held close and dear to their heart
    you made them feel safe so they could impart
    what surely they thought they'd take to their grave
    glad they had you so they'd not feel enslaved
    by the weight of the secret they held deep within
    nothing more wonderful than to have such a friend
    not everyone is able to hold tight a good secret
    didn't mean to tell, they just couldn't keep it
    it burned and it gnawed at their very core
    convincing themselves telling it meant more
    than the confidence given when the secret was shared
    just couldn't keep the secret inside their head
    this is a person i'd be afraid to call friend
    a friend keeps a secret way past the end
    taking it with them to their grave no doubt
    and doing it with ease, the secret never comes out
    nothing more wonderful than to have such a friend
    where trust is the foundation and secrets ascend

    So true about secrets, usually the only way to keep one is to keep it to yourself. One who can keep a secret is a good friend indeed, this was on point.
