A Friend

A friend will laugh
when your jokes are not funny
A friend will be there
when you run short of money

A friend will hold you
when you need to cry
A friend will listen
and never ask why

A friend will be there
when you feel all alone
A friend will answer
when you call on the phone

A friend will check on you
when they feel they should
A friend need not ask
expressions will be understood

A friend is the one
who is there at no charge
A friend can think small
or think very very large

You may be thinking
no friends have I
You must be a friend
to have a friend, is why

Another words, you can not have
what you do not feel
You can only have a friend
if your feelings are real

I have written my feelings
nothing more I can say
I hope you have many friends
and make a new one each day

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
