What Are Friends For - Poem by Charles Garcia

What is a friend for but to listen
To your woes,
A true friend will not step upon
Your toes.

As the secrets you so cherish
is never to be told or shared
with anyone but him.

For a true friend with gentle hands
Reachs out to you willingly to soothe
Your thoughts,
keeps your secrets in his Heart:
Your secrets never to be told.
