Treasure Island

Francis Duggan


Your Friend


You feel the World's against you and your cross heavy to bear
And of future hopes of happiness you do live in despair
But your true friends will stand by you when hope from your life seems gone
And they will do the best they can to help you to keep keeping on,
Acquaintances are many but friends precious and rare
And when you are in trouble your true friends will be there
For to help you through your hard times on them you can depend
You cannot choose your family but you can choose your friend
Your friend accepts you for who you are and you will never judge
And if you have a falling out your friend won't bear a grudge
And the fall out will not last long you will make up again
True friendship survive many trials your friend as your friend remain
Until the reaper on your life will have the final say
Your friend will always be your friend and as your friend will stay.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
