My Alpha to Omega Friend
Dedicated ti all the Poemhunters who have amde me thier Special Friend
A friend is one who always loves you,
Believes in everything you do and say
Comforts you and always will support you,
Dependent - there for you each single day!
Expresses love for you in every which way
Forgives mistakes and never bears a grudge,
Generous to you in all they do and say
Helps you when your auto will not budge!
Invites you to their house for Fish & Chips,
Just to have your company for a while
Kisses you with ardour - full on the lips
Lovingly with such a loving smile!
Makes a real difference - each day that you live
Never judges you or critisises,
Offers you support and is always there to give
Precious calm when storm and doubt arises!
Quiets all your fears - and wipes away your tears,
Raises you up to higher, firmer ground.
Strengthens you and so rolls back the years,
Tucks you up and leaves you safe and sound!
Understands your moods and fears and worries,
Values you when others pass you by,
Walks beside you calm and never hurries
X-rays your heart and lifts you to the sky
Yells at you to STOP when you're in slurries - and
Zaps you back to laughter when you cry
