What Makes A Friend? - Poem by Ashley Olson

A friend
What makes a friend?
A friend
Is someone that everyone needs
A friend
Is that special one
A friend
Is someone you tell EVERYTHING
A friend
Is someone you never lie to
A friend
Can be a boy or a girl
A friend
Is someone that is always their
A friend
Will always listen to you
A friend
Always has input to give
A friend
Will never leave you in the dust
A friend
Will help you through the thick and the thin
A friend
Will always stand by your side
A friend
Will never let you down
A friend
Is someone everyone needs
What would you do if you didnt have a friend?

    The essence of friendship well depicted in the poem. A lovely piece of poetry, well articulated and insightfully penned with conviction. A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND INDEED. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    And to find one good friend
    With all that you seek to find
    Pray look in the mirror, dear friend
    You will find one of your kind (Report) Reply

    There is some thing more than the friend is the true friendship, which is eternal. (Report) Reply

    damm thats right! but the problem iz that theres not that much people in the world like that. too bad and some are already taken. so sooner or later you have to stand alone (Report) Reply
