A Friend By Your Side - Poem by JoJo Bean

A Friend By Your Side

When troubles round the corner and you can not hide
It's good to have a friend by your side
Even if there is nothing they can do
Because it's all up to you
These troubles are all your own
Sometimes you have to go alone
Even love can't smooth the road
Or friendship can't even lighten the load
But it's still good to know that friend is there
Knowing that they really care

    I can always count on you, Sis..i know deep inside..Even if we have'nt meet yet, you deeply touched my very soul..When i was down last week, you helped me, stand by me, and you prayed for me..I cannot forget you..and i will always love you, my friend.. (Report) Reply

    I couldn't agree with you more JoJo, having a friend stand by you is crucial, especially in situations of heartache, despair, lonliness, lost one's due to death
    etc. Of course we must always remember, when we don't have that physical friend close by, we can always call on our most precious friend and walk with him. God will always stand by us, helping to hold us up. Wonderful poem JoJo,

    this is very comforting.
    sometimes though... feel that the friend is not rooting for me. but I know she is always there for me, always on my side.

    JoAnn, through the months we have known each other here, you know that I am always near. If that big pond wasn't between us we'd be closer still and I'd be able to put my arm around at your times of ill. You never know, if my fortunes turn around you might get a call to go out on the town with a not too handsome stranger and his wife so you can show them your cities life. Loved the poem and thank you my dear friend.

    Loved this one! It is right on the mark! Literally. ' If what does not kill us in life...makes us stronger'...we get tougher, and braver, and instead of shrinking or depending on others we actually take care of it ourselves...going straight to the troubles source and resolving it...sometimes we have to have a little bit of higher help, but with the guts and fortitude to get the ball in motion to end the problem once and for all! But friends, are worth more than 'Gold' and i Thank God everyday for mine!
    Big, big fan!
    Love ya,

    This poem has a reassuring feeling; often a person has to walk alone, but a friend’s love can give them strength. Well thought though and written with perfection. (Report) Reply

    So true Jo Jo, good friends are hard to find but if you do never let them go and let them know how special they are, Nice, cheerful piece, like it much!
