Poem - A True Friend

(Dedicated to Sam L)

An Angel helped me one day in May

It will always be a memorable day

If you hadn’t stepped in to rescue me

I’d still be shipwrecked, stranded at sea.


Facing the world every day with a brave Smile

I try to be positive but it only lasts a while

Then night draws near, up to the sky I stare

Saying to myself, “surely, God is up there”!


If you hadn’t stepped in, I couldn’t have coped

If you hadn’t stepped in, I’d have had no hope

and for once in a very long time

At the end of the tunnel, I see the sun shine.


My Prayer: May Gods face shine on you

and bless you and all the work you do

Thank you Bruv for coming through for me

I’ll remember this day for eternity.

A touching poem, Elena. Was it inspired by some real life event? Don't answer if you don't comment on your own hubs. I just have a habit of asking questions. :)

Thanks for your comments Haunty.  It was inspired by true events which happened this week. I was in a very difficult situation and a friend took me by the hand and pulled me out of it and even went a step further to do more. It was overwhelming and sometimes, you want to thank some one a thousand times but you still think its not enough.  So I put it into a poem. Some people you look up to and they let you down but Sam has been a rock. OK Haunty, don’t get me going now or I’ll write a page in response to your comments. Lol.

 I visit your page now and again to read your hubs, they are very interesting.

Angels are around us everywhere. Are you too one? I'm sure you are as you recently acknowledged one in this poem. It takes one to know one.

My spiritual mother (God rest her soul) was and is such a friend to me. Although she has now passed on, what she taught me will not ever leave me, rather that I pass on her treasure to others in their time of need. Beautiful! Voted-up/rated.

Thanks Audrey

I wrote this poem when Solicitors gave me a hefty bill for a house I bought years ago. It was no where near their estimate. Lol.... but my friend came to the rescue.

Best Wishes.
