TRUE FRIEND

I`ve had series of letdowns but not you,
Many were dishonest without regrets,
Your benevolence affixed like a glue.

Your words remove pests like beaks of egrets
on cattle; as they soothe the dying heart,
Many were dishonest without regrets.

You convey comfort through a pleasant cart,
While some conspire,your love spreads like wild fire,
on cattle; as they soothe the dying heart.

Your faith and wisdom,one needs to acquire,
As some practice gossiping for pleasure,
While some conspire,your love spreads like wild fire.

Helping the needy is your good treasure,
Malice and vengeance are not in your mind,
As some practice gossiping for pleasure.

True ,sincere friends are scarce and hard to find,
I`ve had series of letdowns but not you,
Malice and vengeance are not in your mind,
Your benevolence affixed like a glue.



*Dedicated to all my poetrysoup friends,you are all unique....*
