Friends - Poem by joses tirtabudi

A friend is one who cares,
Who helps your burdens bear.
True friends brave weather, bad and fair.
Whenever possible, they will be there.
True friends with you will cry,
Comfort you when you sigh,
Rush to aid when trouble is nigh,
And join you in you’re high.
They’ll be there when you’re sad,
Correct you when you’re bad,
Laugh with you when you’re glad,
And there to calm you when you’re mad.
When you somehow go wrong,
They will not carry on and on.
An’ even when you put up such a song,
True friends will listen for however long.
Any quarrels will quickly mend,
They will stay by right ‘till the end —
They will your enemy fend.
These are the marks of a true friend.

    A friend in need is a friend indeed. A true friend is almost the equal of a good, loving and happy family. Whoever that finds a good friend is blessed with rare gem. I like the articulation and insight of the poem as it captured the essence of true friendship. A nice poem indeed. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
