Becoming A Better Friend - Poem by Shelley Wynona Williams

Many times I avoid
and I’m not always there.
Even when a friend
is in need of my care.

I love to be alone
and aware of just me.
But, it closes a door
to the things I should see.

There is no window
where there is a wall.
I keep much to myself
and I don’t hear you call.

I can be a good friend
and be there for you.
Dry the tears you cry
amid what you go through.

Be your arm and shoulder
and a friend of the day.
Share your every struggle
that the hurt go away.

Bring you peace of mind
with a comforting word.
Be there to listen,
let you know you are heard.

Give hugs of friendship
and bring laughter and fun.
Help you to see that
you are a beautiful one.

While I sit in my silence
and keep myself alone.
I have not made an attempt
to talk on the phone.

My friend you are sweet
and deserving of more.
I will make a window
and open the door.

I will reach out to you
and be a better friend.
When you need somebody,
on me you can depend.

No matter the distance
that can get in the way.
I am always your friend
and I promise to stay.
