Friendship

Written by: William Morrissey

 Friendship




Friendship does not
Hide behind a wall
But reveals himself
By standing tall and upright

To lend an ear
Stretch out  your hand
To show you really care and love 
A strong shoulder to lean on

Words of good advise
Will let hope rise again
To lose a love-one 
Or to be ill

A friend should be there
With words of good cheer and compassion
For a friend who gives from the heart
Does not think to receive

And the difference
Between friend and foe
Is often clouded
By trickery , hate and deceit

When friend come knocking at your door
Now friendship is no more
