The Precious Gift

Who is a friend?
Is a precious gift

A friend, Is a companion
A brother, a sister

A husband, a wife
A father, a mother

One who’ll be there
When no one is

One who’ll come in
When other goes out

One who’ll be there
Whenever you need him

One who’ll sacrifice
Just for your comfort

One who’ll make sure
He starves and you are fun

One who’ll lift you up
Rather than pull you down

One who is never tired of
Helping always willing

One who tell you the bad
Side of you always and the good

One who is never tired of beating
You when you go wrong

One who is special and
Doesn’t even know he is

One who thinks of
You more himself less

One who never forget you
Cherishes your everything

Sees you with the eyes
No one has

Sees who you really are
Sees the real you

No who make you special
Makes life meaningful

Give life a meaning
In the way you never thought

Makes you a better person
Lead you in and out

Don’t judge you
When you’re wrong

Or put you aside
But embrace you

It’s all right
I hope you’re learn from it

One who listens
When no one cares to

One who tells you
Everything about him

One who hurts you so much
But yet makes you happy

Misses you and never fails to let
You know you’re wanted always

A friend’ a rare gem
An angel in disguise

Can’t be
Bought or sold

Its value is greater
Than mountain of gold

If you shall
Ask God for gift

Be thankful, if He
Send you not diamond peals

But the love,
Trust of friend.

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
