There comes a time when sunny days 
turn dark and and we stand in cold shadows
shivering with despair
with nothing to declare;
shouldn't we remember that true friends
always stand by us?

Somewhere in the middle of a scary storm,
we seek a bright light to shine through;
will the words of that true friend be gentle and warm?
Shouldn't they have enough wisdom to uplift us,
strengthen our weakened faith and confidence? 

We must be aware that not anyone can be our friend
and be deserving of our indisputable trust and loyalty,
look for that one whose eyes glow with honesty;
I have found such a wonderful and caring friend
who listens to my problems and gives me advice... 
I must affirm that, " A true friend always stands by us. "
