A True Friend Poem by Ashley Reese


A true friend
A true friend is the one who picks you up when you fall
A true friend is one that won't lie
A true friend is there when you call
A true friend is there when you want to die
A true friend knows just what to say
A true friend won't care what other people think
A true friend will help you find your way
A true friend will make sure you don't sink
A true friend will help you choose your path
A true friend will know when something is wrong
A true friend has to sometimes face your wrath
A true friend makes you feel like you belong
A true friend

    Hi ASHLEY - I love this Poem because it makes an important distinction between Friends and True Friends. When I ask someone to be my Friend on PH then what I am relly saying is will you be my True Friend. I was born in Liverpool (Home of the Beatles) and we are known as the Friendly City! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! .
    A true Friend is someone who is there for you 24/7 and because of the Message System on PH (or through email) we can always be there if someone wants a shoulder to cry on (electronically) we are always there. I always 'Pick my friends uo when they fall' 'Never lie' 'There for you 24/7 irrespective of the problem' 'Don't care what others think and make sure you don't sink' 'Show you the right way' 'Know when something's wrong - make you feel strong'. that is what TRUE FRIENDS are for - thanks for sharing. Love & Friendship through Poetry - JOHN (Report) Reply

    Wow! I've been hunting for a nice friend poem for a while now, and this one is just perfect! I am happy to have stumbled upon it :) The only thing I thought 'die' sounder a bit morbid, so I changed it to 'cry' in stead :) (Report) Reply
