Treasure Island

Katherine Sessor

(March 14,1990 / Virginia)

A Real Friend

A real friend would forgive
If I did something wrong
A real friend will lend a hand
Whenever I'm not strong

A real friend would listen
If I tried to speak
A real friend will accept
Whether I am strong or weak

A real friend would care
If I ever fell ill
A real friend will know
How I really feel

A real friend would always be there
If I need them by my side
A real friend will remember me
Long after I have died

A real friend would be forever
If I even moved away
A real friend will never truly leave
In each other's hearts we shall always stay

    Hey Katherine I love this poem a lot. I thought that I had a friend, a best friend at that, but it turned out that she didn't want to be my friend no more for no apparent reason. This poem brought some light to my situation concerning this person. This is a great poem. You are a great poet for your age, I'm 19 years old myself and I'll be 20 years old in September. Keep writing, you're awesome! (Report) Reply

    How well you have brought out, in this poem, the essence of 'A friend in need is a friend in deed'. One who reads this poem without a clue to your age, would hardly imagine this lovely poem has been penned, in fact, by a TEENAGER! May you move from strength to strength! (Report) Reply

    Sweet, well written. Enjoyable read. Will read your others. Your past your age in ability (seems to me anyway) . Keep writing! (Report) Reply

    This reminds me of my own poem. It is the first poem on my list called 'A Friend'.
    I like the rhyme and it pleases me to respond that the rhythm is well done.

    Another heartfelt poem, and once again a well-crafted one. You understand how emotion can be expressed in a controlled way, and how that can be much more effective than an uncontrolled outpouring, however sincere it might be. Your rhymes are never forced, but flow naturally - another gift that is all too uncommon on this site. An excellent piece. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
