If You Ever Need A Friend, Here I am-- A Poem

Please, read as you listen to this song..

If you need a friend....!


Don't wait until the end


to let me know that I was


always there for you again and again!


Just realize how far we've made it


through tribulations away from heaven



if you need a friend


stop wasting time with foolish


people that drag you into rotten mud


I will always be there for you


with my heart, my soul, my mind and truth



Just for you, who can never be misunderstood!!




If you ever fall


I'd remind you that after all


I would cross the seven seas


to take you to safe harbour


to that island with no harm


where we will rest away from thugs of war




If you ever need a friend


Just be sincere and take my hand


If you ever need my attention


get closer and forget missinterpretations




If you ever feel alone


Just drop me a note and I will move my connections


If you ever need me home


just give me that clue and will stop any confabulation!



If you ever need this friend


with patience and charm with no end


just make the move


that will start us anew





If you ever need a friend


For God's sake! Come to me now!


and stop messing around


with the wrong crowd



If you ever feel this down


Say it again and again...

and we will make it to the end.



If you ever need a word or two


that could change your world forever


Stick with me and don't ever let go



Because in the end, we will be closer as one



If you need this friend


Just let me remind you one little thing


I needed you also... When I was next to you!


I wanted so bad to get myself out of


my own sadness, tears and the one that you chose!!

So touching. Thank you my brother. I enjoyed the words of wisdom. You lift me up when I am down. You wipe away tears and bring me joy. Although apart you will be forever in my heart. From a sister to a brother, thank you. ((((Hugs))) :)

I listened to both songs. :) You are my BFF! (((Hugs))

Amen and it is! All of us are here for a reason HP. What is amazing is many of us will never be forgotten. So many missed. :( Keep writing my brother and share your words with the world. You are an inspiration to everyone who reads your work. You life them and inspire them, provide knowledge to those who are struggling and reach out and say hello, when they need someone. Your words are powerful! :)

Epigramman,

Yes! I'm here next to you my friend. Technology is getting people closer. Thanks STEVE JOBS R.I.P. Nice to meet you Miss tiffy.. I can see her next to you or under your desk as you let inspiration flow into the keyboard-screen tool. If you knew me, you wouldn't be surprised. I'm the best friend you've ever had. Ask my sister AEvans.

Hi Nicole,

This poem was written in 25 min. or so. Was inspired over real events and a good feeling through the day. But I don't know how to explain it at times...the words just come and fit right in and becomes the final a polished product. Glad you enjoy it.

Hi BECKY0,

Well, was written thinking about how so many friends helped us throughout our own lives...and if you relate to that, certainly made the author's day. Thanks for your comment..and welcome to HP.

Thank you for sharing from your heart. I've been there and I've had the friends to stand by me when I was down and out in many ways. I also thank a teacher that stepped to the plate for me in grade 5 that made a difference in my life, she was the angel that lit my path and set me on a course and future.

I just wrote my most recent Hub about that experience. A Sorrow No One Hears.....this was an inspiring piece and I am happy to read about a friendship you offer that many would die to have....blessings to you and yours....


Lord De Cross profile image

Lord De Cross 5 years ago Author

Saddlerrider,

Yes is from our heart. And I consider you one of my best friends...Lord has a gift. I can tell... you are one of the best friends one can have. Actually I had a wonderful History teacher who changed my life. My dad got me a math tutor at 14 anad that changed my life too. You see? Now I have EPI and ppl like saddlerider1. As of today I'm giving back to friends by helping and even counseling others. My reward will..or is already up there

LORD

will read your " A Sorrow no one COULD feel"

I've always loved that song! The Promise! Love the poem. And I love the pic of the dog and cat, as my true best friends are a canine and a troop of felines. I can relate with Epi on that one. Good job, Lord. :-)

Lord,

If you were trying to give someone special a message, I am sure it landed on her heart, because it gave me chills, with the song and your lovely poem. I loved the kitty and doggie, also.

How Great Thou Are,

Hello Victoria,

Was the summer of 88 when this group caught my attention. One day I was hearing to them again in 2009, when youtube was growing up. And when I found about hubpages and its potentiality, I decided to give it a try and the result was delivered to you my friends. Thanks for the Follow my friend!

Hello AudreyHowitt,

As a newcomer you will meet wonderful people that will be singing that song in their actions toward your person. As you already see it, our friends in here are very "sensitive" to say so, and they will help you out whenever you need them. Glad you enjoyed the words!

Purbisbobbi44,

This is an inspiration from our heart. Nothing was created with no passion and feelings. We writers and yourself, we have a very demanding responsibility toward our fellows hubbers that read our work, and as you see, we try to keep up and keep on going. Your poem about the girl walking on the snow was hilarious beyond expectations and that was good. Thanks for your following me up...in here I mean...!

Joseph (Lord),

Sunnie is right, to have even just one friend as sincere and devoted as you are to all of your friends is a blessing beyond measure. So glad I found this and read your words of wisdom as to what being a true friend is all about. Very profound and touches one deep into the heart. When true friends are around and there for you no matter what, then there is no room to be lonely. To trust someone is to give them your heart and know you will be safe, and that is an amazing feeling.

Both videos are wonderful. The first one seems more for lovers than friends, as there is a lot of kissing going on, but sometimes one's true love in this life, starts out as one's best friend, how lovely. And that is how it should be too. The second video is so very delightful as to friendships in general.

Wow, you take friendship to the next level of really being there for someone, which is astounding, and this beautiful poem is so sincere and straight from your heart no doubt.

Voted Way Up and tweeted ----but as soon as I remember my Pinterest password, I will come back and Pin too. LOL

God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

Friendship is so important nowadays, that we look for it unconciously to keep a healty living. Boredom and and a mind can give way to unthinkable reactions in society. Wars and famine, even destruction took over the centuries due to the lack of friendly feelings toward our fellow man. Thanks as always for your words Faith. You are such a kind soul!
