Your True Friends

You are down and out without any money and you've given up on all hope
And you think about ending your misery from a rafter beam dangling from a rope
And some of those you thought were good mates in your time of need not to be found
It is then you know who your friends are your true friends will rally around
And try to help you out of your troubles and offer you financial aid
Though some of those who were your friends in the good times in your time of need from your life fade
A true friend will always stick by you a true friend will not see you down
Though some may see you as a loser one of the poor souls of the Town,
You had many friends in your good days such stories have been told before
But now that you've fallen on hard times you are not that well liked anymore
But your real friends they will not ignore you and they will look on you as the same
Person you were when you were seen as successful though you don't have a coin to your name,
In your time of need they stick by you as your friends are precious and rare
They will do their best for to help you and worry about your welfare

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
