A friend is someone whose arms reach out
far beyond their reach,
to comfort a troubled soul,
and help them through their troubled times.

A friend is someone who always freely gives,
expecting nothing in return,
and is always there
whenever the need may arise.

A friend is someone who cares from the heart.
Who will stand by your side
whenever the troubles start.

A friend is someone whose face may never be seen,
but whose touch is always felt
and their words always
comfort your ailing soul.

A friend is someone who will never criticize,
but will listen to a troubled mind
without complaining.

A friend is someone who is all these,
and so much more.
Someone who will never ignore you,
but will always have the time

O Love! thou makest all things even
