A Friend Indeed


A friend who covers not sin
But covers from sin
Is a friend indeed
For he sees our need

A friend who can embrace
When others pick race
Is a friend indeed
For he will help to proceed

A friend who can scold
When one stray from the fold
A friend who trust in our deed
Is a friend indeed

A friend who seek
When one is sick
Is a friend indeed
In the time of need

A friend whose tender compassion
Is not subjected to condition
He is a friend indeed
That is not a reed
He may have no money to spray
But never lack good thing to say
A friend indeed
Is a form of seed

He never makes fun of you
His presence is a fun to you
A friend in need
Is a friend indeed

A friend who keeps no secret
But keeps one’s secret
He is a friend indeed
That can be trusted indeed

He will not expose our shame
But cloths from shame
A friend indeed
Is a friend in need

A friend who sees our fault
But never drag to the court
He is a friend indeed
That loves indeed

A friend who sees our weakness
But focus on our usefulness
He is a friend indeed
In the time of need

A friend who will never spit
When we fall into the pit
He is a friend indeed
That sees our need

A friend who shares burden
But never wear with burden
He is a friend indeed
For he loves indeed

A friend who will not bubble
When one fumbles
He is a friend indeed
For he knows our need

A friend who work in
When the whole world work out
He is a friend indeed
In time of need

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
