A Friend

A friend is a strong light-post
Standing supportive
And lighting your way for you

A friend is like the moon
Always there for you
And strongest when nearest

A friend understands you well
Listens to your cries
As well as your joys and victories

A friend is like a hickory tree
Supplying food when you need it
And burns hot, when you are cold

A friend sits alongside you
Even when you are wrong
And supports you endeavors nonetheless

A friend is longstanding
Like the light-post
Ever radiant and giving free light

A friend is always there for you
No matter what you have done
And will always be your friend
No matter the disguise you have on!

True, thoughtful words, Russell. A true friend is worth more than gold! I've had a few fair weather friends in my time, but I still have true friends, and that means a lot. Thanks for sharing.
