Just Friends-Sonnet Poem by Joseph Anderson

Just Friends-Sonnet

Rating: 5.0

As I stroll through my halls of memories,
Surveying all twas good and all twas strife,
It seems some inner wisdom in me sees
The joys, the blessings friends gave to my life.

When dark days loom a friend may ease your plight,
Shed light upon your heavy laden heart,
Lend peace and comfort in your daily fight;
These are the things true friendship can impart.

To face life's problems one most surely must
Hold fast to friends acquired along the way;
Instill in them a sense of sharing trust.
Perhaps, their help brings yet a better day.

Care for the friends along the way, you sought-
True friendship is a given, never bought.

What is better then a true friend

I like the poem from beginning to end. It starts with a walk through memory hall and that is one of the most amazing things we as humans have and can do, isn't it. And there in that vast hall of memories you find the friends that have made a difference in your life and were helping you in the most difficult moments. And then that wonderful ending, so true that we cannot buy friendship, if money becomes an important factor freindship tends to be gone. Excellent poem, Joseph and I like in all of your poems very much the natural sounding rhymes.
