A Friend Like You - Poem by Richard Howardson

You always listen to me
and understand what i do or say,
you always stand by me
and never go away.

My happiness has a lock,
and you are the key,
you keep my secrets closed,
and never let them free.

I always doubted on my luck,
cause it was never on a high,
but when i thought about you,
a soft breeze just went by.

How fortunate i am,
till now i never knew,
to have in my life
a friend like you........


Thank you for being my friend!
