My Best Friend
I ask you things sometimes really silly
what’s correct? Is it Chile, Chilli, or Chilly
You are the only one, whom I can talk freely
I’m not gonna lie, with you I connect.
Why it smells? Why is looks so frilly
What smells better? Rose, Jasmine, Lilly?
You know my favorites and what’s most thrilly
What soothes my eyes? Former or latter?
Why are you so dependable, my lovely?
What’s your secret? Are you some heavenly?
In keeping all my paradoxes, you make no sully.
In laughter or cry, you’re my only outlet.
In my silliness or my smartness, you never judge,
O’Google! you know me well but keep no grudge.
