Friend


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

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
