The Good Friend (Revised) - Poem by Amanda Wearstler

The good friend
Is always there
Is always faithful
Is always supportive

The good friend
Loves unconditionally
Forgives easily
Forgets every wrong

The good friend
Cries over you
Cries for you
Cries with you

The good friend
Gets hurt
Gets walked on
Gets left behind

The good friend
Keeps her heart open
Keeps smiling
Keeps her promises

The good friend
Never gives up
Never stops being true
Never fades away

The Good friend
Is who I am
Who I always want to be
Who you can always trust to be there with a smile and open arms.

Its hard,
But I am the good friend.

    Most beautiful! ! I agree, it's hard bieng like that and it's harder when your friend is not bieng a friend. Also i agree with Bill Thomas says, the world would be so much better. some people give up on friendships and it hurts when others are trying to keep the friendship groing. Keep on writing. =) (Report) Reply

    A very moving piece, Amanda, well-crafted, with a lovely twist at the end: it *is* hard to be the good friend, but with folk like you around trying their best (& writing good poetry) , the world will be a much better place. Thank you. (Report) Reply
