A True Friend

Rating: 5.0

A friend for every moment of the day
A friend with embracing smile, heart's joy ray
A friend who's there in time of need
A friend who plods you to succeed
A friend who is real and dear to me
A friend who cajoles and pushes my best to be
A friend whom I shudder and tremble to lose
A friend without I am lost!
A friend I would treasure at any cost
A friend whether up or down I'd care

A friend in time of need I'd be there

A person who has a true friend is very fortunate. Your poem outlines the qualities a true friend has and in your poem the line 'A friend in time of need I'd be there' shows the reader that it is reciprocal. I enjoyed your lovely poem Paul. thank you. 'Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light' (Helen Keller)
