A Friend - Poem by Willa Louise Payne

A friend in need is a friend indeed.
A friend that gets in trouble,
And another comes over to comfort them.
To stick by and give his best,
Without worry of laughter, talking and slanderous.
A friend sends flowers when you're sick,
Or comes by to see what they can do.
So that your day can be as smooth as can be.
To help you make your way as sweet and true.
A friend will see that you rest in peace,
Wishing you well as most anybody will do.
The world is so disturbed today.
We all really need a good friend in every way.
A true friend will stick by you until the end.
