A Friend

A person who will listen and not condemn
Someone on whom you can depend
They will not flee when bad times are here
Instead they will be there to lend an ear
They will think of ways to make you smile
So you can be happy for a while
When times are good and happy there after
They will be there to share the laughter
Do not forget your friends at all
For they pick you up when you fall
Do not expect to just take and hold
Give friendship back, it is pure gold.

    I love this poem. It comes from the heart. Greater words cannot be expressed, until they are said to be felt with true meaning.

    This poem has true potential. These are the kind of poems that go deep into your heart and find your weak spot then you finally get the feeling of FRIENDSHIP
