A TRUE FRIEND

Written by: Mazher Rasheed

A true friend never walks away
A true will always stay
A true friend looks out for you 
A true friend will guard your secrets
Like a precious gift
A true friend is there for you
To give you a helpful lift 
A true friend tries to make you smile
Tries to replace that frown
They may not always succeed 
But they rarely let you down 
These arms for you are open
This heart for you does care
And when I think you need me
I'll try to always be there 
I'll listen to your fears
I promise not to laugh
Comfort your falling tears
I'll make this friendship last 
I'll keep you near to my heart
I'll always hold you dear
Even when we're miles apart
Even when you're here 
I hope I am to you
Everything you are to me
For the friendship we have
Is a special one indeed.
