The Image of a Friend


As I look through the window of friendship,
I see in the gentle wind,
The whispered breeze of an angel,
It is in the image of 'friend'.

This friend has a heart of compassion,
Caring that comes without end,
The giving of love to others,
Characterizes my dear friend.

This friend has hands that carry,
The load of your burdens with ease,
Hands that will hold others' problems,
Grasping with love, not to cease.

This friend has eyes, understanding,
That see to the heart of a soul,
Eyes that are never condemning,
But rather see new ways to grow.

This friend has ears that listen,
And hear the call of a friend,
Ears that will cherish the moment,
And take the time to lend.

The image of friend described here,
Is the picture I see in my mind,
When I look through the window of life,
Your image is what I find!
