Friends - Poem by Richard Blay

Friends, false friends are like shadows
Remaining with you only when the sun shines
Indeed a friend is when in need
Ever wondered why? I'll tell you
None likes dark days, so those who stays
Dare I say, are friends indeed!
So careful how friends you choose

This is a simple acrostic poem.

    In life we meet different friends
    Each has his own trend
    The false ones - we rend.
    God bless you Richard. Love it (Report) Reply

    A lovely piece of poetry penned with insight. A friend in need is a friend indeed. A good friend is almost the equal of a good and happy family. A nice poem indeed. Thanks for sharing and do keep it up. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    A good poem, I am reminded of a poem that I read in my college, I forgot the poet's name but its heading was True Friend as far as I remember: -
    If thy sorrow,
    He will weep.
    If thou awake,
    He cannot sleep.

    These are certain signs to know,
    Faithful friend from a flattering foe. (Report) Reply
