Trusting Friends Are Rare - Poem by Francis Duggan
Though many will tell you that it isn't so
'Tis far harder to make a good friend than a foe
In your down times a person on whom you can depend
To offer you the support of a kind and caring friend.
In a World of so much self centredness trusting friends are rare
People who for you as a person do genuinely care
They will not turn their backs on you in your times of need
A good friend to you in your hard times is a friend indeed.
Feel lucky to have one good friend in the town
One who offers you friendship when life has you down
When you feel despondent and in spirits quite low
Understanding and compassion for you he or she does show.
With your drinking friends in the pub you talk of football
But bar room mates are not good friends overall
When you are financially embarrassed them you never see
Your true friends to you precious with that most would agree.
