A true friend to me

A true friend isn't a daydreamer and won't daydream for you.
He isn't a bad wisher and will wish luck for you.

A true friend is a painkiller, he exist to heal your wound.
He is a consultant, there to help you grab and stand your ground.

A true friend is rare to find in a vacuum.
He is always at a wait by your door room.

True frendship’s beauty never fades.
Day by day, its beauty tree grows shades.

A friend who is always there whenever we need
Him most, is a true friend you and I need.

    It can be an old poem of course. I am glad you ask. Or maybe you want to use your antelope. I agree with all the comments on that one... xox~ Linda

    This is a great description of what friend should be. I love the tree metaphor. Suz

    I thought the beginning lines were most interesting. A friend to help you keep your feet on the ground... not help your head get stuck in the clouds... what a way to word things!
