A Friend (The Valentine's Day Poem) - Poem by GREENWOLFE 1962

A friend to light a candle
When darkness overcomes.
A friend to hold you closer
When distant thunder drums.

A friend to gently tie you
When sirens sing your name.
A friend with words to soothe you
When life's a losing game.

A friend to cool your passions
When passions take their hold.
A friend to warm you gently
When a frozen heart's too cold.

A friend to spread contentment
As seasons wax and wane,
Make sense of love's confusion,
And bear life's grief and pain.

A friend who knows this season
Of love; both yours and mine.
A friend, another reason,
To send this Valentine.

    i found this poem most excellent. It has a wonderful flow, or 'rhythm and rhyme' as you call it and you set yourself up for a great finish, something that i find very inportant when writing poetry. (Report) Reply

    i like this poem..
    friend s the most person
    who frst give his shoulder to cry on
    who comfort u n every sad moments
    who lend his hand when u need it
    who laugh at ur mistakes
    but cries on ur failure..
    friend never turns his back in times of worries
    never let you down
    never let you fall
    never make you cry
    for friend is a true person
    a precious gem
    a gift from GOD
    to us...

    friend is more than anything, ,
    like a gold
    so precious
    true friends wont harm you, thats for sure....
    lav ya..naizz (Report) Reply
