I Have A Friend - Poem by Jim Yerman
I was thinking about my friends other day…and got to wondering…
here's the thing…
I have a friend who loves to dance…and one who loves to sing
I have a friend I've known most of my life…and another I've recently met…
I have a friend who dislikes animals and another who surrounds herself with pets.
I have a friend who loves ice cream…another who only eats cake
I have a friend who hates the sight of reptiles and another who loves her snakes.
I have a friends who is an artist…another who isn't but loves to draw
I have a friend who is a doctor and one who practices law….
I have a friend who loves the beach…she loves the weather when it's hotter
I have a friend who loves the cold and won't go near the water.
Yes, as I count my diverse friendships…I realize with pride
that I have many people in my life Im honored to stand beside….
So here's the thing I was wondering…how many of us truly comprehend
how lucky we are to begin even one sentence with the words…
I have a friend…
