A True Friend


What is a friend of true st kind?
The kind that stands the test of time
Just what exactly does it mean,
To say you are a friend of mine?

To be a true friend canít be learned
Itís not a skill, itís not an art
Itís something that was always there
True friendship comes from in the heart

Sometimes friends can be held near
Sometimes theyíre half a world apart
Some friendships take some time to grow
Others take off from the start

Theyíll have the simple needed words
That turn a frown into a smile
Regardless of how near or far
A true friends words can span the miles

If we should call each other friends
Then always Iíll be here for you
To dry the tear drops from your face
For when you hurt then I hurt too

Or we can laugh for hours
As our happiness we share
Come rain or shine dear friend of mine
You know that Iíll be there

This is perfection in poetic form, Jack. What wonderful words you have penned. There is nothing in life like a true friend to help us with a hand up when we stumble and offer us a shoulder when we need strength. Wonderful rhyme!
Take care,
Sherry

The closest and truest friends I know or feel close to are my friends here at AD. Never touched or met eye to eye...but some are very dear to me...and I know they will remain friends for life. Even though the feelings might not be mutual...I am speaking from my heart to theirs!!

Lovely heartfelt read dear friend!!

Love Tinka
