How to say "You are my friend" in Vietnamese? Expressing possession in Vietnamese with persons.

Hello, I've just started to learn Vietnamese ̣(3 days ago), so I'm quite a beginner in the matter!

How can I say: "You are my friend"

Context: My friend is a woman and she is younger than me.

Is "Em bạn anh" (you friend me) correct? Would it be better if I added "của"

--> "Em bạn của anh" (You friend of me)

I'm wondering... should I use the verb "to be" là?

--> "Em là bạn của anh". (you are friend of me)

Thanks for your help!

    you are my friend. = em là bạn của anh.
    you = em
    are = là
    my friend = của anh.

    example, this is my friend = đây là bạn của mình = đây là bạn của tớ. It depend on the relationship between u and your friend.

    you are my friend = em là bạn anh (not "của", it is true)

    Me, "you are my friend" just means "em là bạn anh" or "chúng ta là bạn". When I say "this is my friend" in Vietnamese, I'll say "đây là bạn tớ/em/anh", "she is my friend" is "Cô ấy là bạn tớ", I seldom use "cô ấy là bạn của tớ"
