A Friend

A helping hand when hands are tied
A tissue given when tears are cried
A smile when others at you frown
A pick-me-up when you are down
A song of praise for spirits low
A companion when the going’s slow
A picked up check when debts are high
An unwillingness to say good-bye
An ear to hear you moan and whine
A forgiveness for your waste of time
A withheld judgment while others stone
An every time answerer of the phone

The person to stick with you to these ends
Is the person that you can truly call a friend
