Cherished Friend - Poem by Padmore Enyonam Agbemabiese

God knows there would be times
we'd need a word of cheer
want the face of smile
to brush away our tears

He knows there would be times
we'd need the joy of 'little things'
in order to appreciate what life brings
across our steps on this long road

He knows our hearts
oftentimes throb with aches and pains
at the door of trials and misfortunes
when the day is dark with no light at sight

He knows we'd need the comfort
of an understanding heart
to give us strength and courage
that we make a fresh and new start

He knows we’ll need companionship
that’s unselfish, lasting and true,
thus, He always answers our heart's call
with the gift of a Friend, like you
