A True Friend - Poem by Paul Sebastian

A friend for every moment of the day
A friend with embracing smile, heart's joy ray
A friend who's there in time of need
A friend who plods you to succeed
A friend who is real and dear to me
A friend who cajoles and pushes my best to be
A friend whom I shudder and tremble to lose
A friend without I am lost!
A friend I would treasure at any cost
A friend whether up or down I'd care
A friend in time of need I'd be there
A friend whose fire burns bright and strong
A friend warms one out in the cold so long
A friend who cares
A friend who shares
A friend who dares
A friend …who lives for all eternity

    A person who has a true friend is very fortunate. Your poem outlines the qualities a true friend has and in your poem the line 'A friend in time of need I'd be there' shows the reader that it is reciprocal. I enjoyed your lovely poem Paul. thank you.
