'True Measurement Of A Friend' - Poem by Linda Winchell

The true measurement of a friend
is in how far their friendship goes.
Willing to make you part of their everyday
if only to just call and say, 'Hello! '

'How is your day going my friend?
I just called to see how you are.
Was listening to one of our favorite songs
while out working in the yard.'

A friend is more then an occasional thought
when they have nothing else to do.
A friend is always faithfully prepared
to do all those friend type things with you.

To go a step out and above
to show their consideration and friends love.
Not just use you, then throw you away.
Then think they can come back in your life just any old day.

A friendship takes work, this I know
for someone who called me their friend, I had to let go.
They were lacking what my friend should be
what they were missing was, no time for a friend named ME!
