 When you're at your lowest point
and you think you cant go on
A friend will lift your spirits up
And make sure you're all right

Some friends are there in sunshine
But will leave you when it rains
They are there when things are fine
But wont stay for the hurricane

Some people buy their friends, 
 A dime a dozen,  and that is very cheap
Those shallow friendships will soon end
But true friends are for keeps

Some friends are there in summer
But will leave you when it's cold
When you've found a true friend
You've found a pot of gold

    Yes, it's true ... some "buy" themselves friends, but that is not friendship .- FRIENDS ARE :"When you've found a true friend You've found a pot of gold" Very well written Joseph !!!! - Luck in contest!!! - oxox // Anne-Lise :)
