To Find a Friend
This poem is dedicated to my precious, irreplacable, blessings to my life, my 'Friends!'
Charlotte, Meja, Grace, Trina, Tommy, and the list goes on!! I have found a friend in each of you, I hope I can be as good a friend to you as you have been to me.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your life , I cherish your friendships!!
Friends come in different sizes,
different names and walks of life.
They could be your next door neighbor,
the man on the corner, or your wife.
They come in different wrappings,
different looks and colors too.
They sometimes really surprise us
when we are in need and they come to our rescue.
There are friends that stick beside us
no matter what the problem may be.
They hold us close and love us
Their goodness is not hard to see.
They save us from ourselves sometimes
when we can't see to clear.
They help us pick the pieces up
and tell us do not fear.
We will get through this, you and I,
no matter how long it takes.
The road may be long
but I will be here for you whenever you awake.
Friends are special angels
that are sent into our lives
To lift us up and bless us
and make us feel alive.
We each have something to offer
to those who cross our paths,
We should take the time to
look deeper into the kindest acts.
There is something we should learn from them.
Something we too can give,
to peoples souls and spirits
we just need to look deeper and give.
Give of ourselves, of our hearts,
of the energy within.
It's what we are suppose to do,
cheer them on, lift them up,
love them selflessly
til they are loved back to
that soft place to fall.
That's what we are you know?
someones soft place to fall,
someones rock, someones shoulder to cry on,
someones safe haven, it's a need in us all.
So next time you see a old friend,
or someone new appears in your life,
Take a look into their soul and spirit,
we are all in need of human touch ,
whether it be a kind word, the touch of a hand
a hug, or time together,
it can mean so much.
You have to be a good friend
to find good friends.
Sincere caring that comes straight from the heart,
is worth more than all the money in the world.
And it is right here inside each of us where it starts.
