A Friend In Need, A Friend Indeed - Poem by Meggie Gultiano

What has friendship got to do in times of need?
A thousand reasons perhaps for one to see
Someone in collaboration with unlikely times...,

Thus, I turn to the Great Provider for counsel
And wisdom for such trial,
For I too have also been there

Sometime, somewhere buddy!
I could not offer you fortune,
For I have none but perhaps
Some note to cheer you up

Like the earthworm burrowing in mud
To fit in some kind of home and feel 'comfy'...
Yes, that is you all the while,
Laughing our heartaches to no end

Until they got tired of you;
Such loving care I find in you, my friend-
A medicine to a searching soul for passion.

    'Sometime, somewhere buddy!
    I could not offer you fortune,
    For I have none but perhaps
    Some note to cheer you up'

    it is so true they don't need fortune but your being there with them, that means the world to them....10

    So wonderful to be rich in friends. They
    are the true gold in this journey we call
    life. A beautiful poem, Meggie. Your
    words are always uplifting In Proverbs
    we are told that, 'A friend loveth at
    all times'. And I am sure you do.

    Always your friend,

    A loving and sensitive poem for your dear friend. I particularly love the earthworm simile as it gives the poem so much substance and confirms your support for your friend. Our very miserable our lives would be without friends as they are so vital to our happiness. I attended a lecture on happiness and this was one of the important points to a happy life. Beautiful writing Meggie.
