What is a Friend

It's important to have a real close friend,
on whom you can rely.
One who shares your hopes and dreams.
Consoles you, when you cry!

A shoulder, you can lean on,
in times of stress and strife,
to encourage and advise you,
down the road we know, as life!

A friend who'll always be there!
One on whom, you can depend!
Does not question your decisions,
he's just a loyal friend!

He'll back you up, through thick and thin,
no matter how bizarre!
He treats you like a brother!
He accepts you, as you are!

No matter what the future holds,
there's one thing to contend,
you'll know that you've been truely blessed,
because, he is your friend!
