Special Friend Poem

The Characteristics Of A Friend

I'm a regular girl with a regular life and regular friends. Without my friends, I wouldn't be the person I am. I'm not going to say their names, but if you're reading this, you know who you are. I've read this list over and over, and not one of the conditions doesn't apply to my BFFs. They're supportive, encouraging, funny, and kind. Nothing beats having friends - true friends - and hopefully this poem will help you realize what a friend is.

A friend is a person
who has always has your back,
a person
who has faith in you and says that you can.

A friend is a person
who points you onward, instead of leading you askew,
a person
who gives you hope to see the journey through.

A friend is a person
who helps you up when you've fallen,
a person
who cheers you up when you're sullen.

A friend is a person
who even though all have passed,
still cheers you on,
even if you're in last.

A friend is a person
who remembers what you knew,
a person
who stands by you and forgets every feud.

A great story (poem) that really touches the heart of the matter. My BFF was all that & more, even though he wound up in federal prison. He started distancing himself but set me up with the right people to insure my life did not go in that direction. I haven't seen or heard from him since he went away, over thirty years ago. It sounds odd, but I'll never find a better friend, in spite of the way it went. Thanks for sharing.
