True Friend


Friend gives you smile
But true friend gives you happiness

Friend will lie about you
But true friend won’t tell your weakness

Friend knives your back
But true friend will slog your face

Thousands friends come when you’re happy
But only one true friend comes when you cry

Friend comes when he needs you
But true friend comes when you need him

Friend leaves when everybody does
But true friend comes when everybody leaves

Friend comes and leaves
But true friend is yours forever

    Dear, Dear Clara:
    I did enjoy your poem and I would like you to read mine called The Bloom of Youth.
    Keep writing and don't rush through life. There is so much new information to be gained when you let life come to you. I wish you all the best.

    Hi Clara - Lovely poem - lovely girl - I score it TEN (Scorer not working) . I always like to be a true friend giving (you) happiness - confidentiallity - a snog (not a SLOG!) - drying your tears - available - faithful - eternal. really true friends are hard to find - keep them if you do find them. There are lesser friends who we call AQUAINTANCES They do - smile - lie - stab you in the back - fair weather friends -selfish - fickle and transient. It is important to be able to distinguish between someone who is just an Aquaintance and someone who is a True Friend. I love being your true friend CLARA. Love you in Poetry - JOHN (Report) Reply
