A Faithful Friend - Poem by Patricia Grantham

How many of you can find a faithful friend?
That will stick close by you unto the very end
When trouble comes they will never forsake
Always ready to give more than they will take

A friend like that is so very hard to find
One you can count on to talk and unwind
Someone that's concerned about how you feel
Cares for you deeply with a love that's real

A friend when in need is a friend indeed
Show yourself friendly by sowing the seed
How sweet are the words spoken between friends
Just like a balm that heals or a needle that mends

A friend that sticks closer than any brother
Very trustworthy and not the same as another
You can count on them to answer when you call
There to help you when your back is to the wall

    Great poem on faithfulness. Friendship is a river that can be deep and wide, but constantly flowing with love. I like your last stanza:

    A friend that sticks closer than any brother
    Very trustworthy and not the same as another
    You can count on them to answer when you call

    sincere friends hard to find. if we are sincere in what we do for other people we may have many friends. But today, we surround by materialistic goods and money. With money we can have plentiful Faked friends. (Report) Reply

    White Tiger wrote a poem quite similar to this one. Unfortunately he has removed all his poems. This reminded me of him. Wild. (Report) Reply
