a shadowbox poem

What does it mean to be a friend
I’ve thought about it so
I think it means a lot of things
That everyone should know

It means to share the laughter
It means to share the tears
When chips are down you’ll be around
To chase away the fear

When they need someone to listen
They know you’ll lend your ear
And anytime they need advice
You will always be sincere

For you they’d go the extra mile
To turn your frown into a smile
And then they’d do it all again
And all because they are your friend

Friendship is a sort of love
A special kind of glue
I’m blessed you see, because I know
I have a friend in you
