My Friends - Poem by Linda Ori

Some friends I turn to for comfort
Some friends I turn to for fun
Some friends are there when I need them
And some friends are second to none;
Some friends will give me attention
Some friends will give me a call
Some friends Just know what I'm saying
When I'm saying nothing at all;
Some friends will give me the shirt off their back
Some friends will give their last dime
Some friends will give up their moments
To give me the gift of their time;
These are the friends that I treasure
These are the friends that will last
These are the friends I can count on
When all other friendships are past.
