A Friend

A friend is always there for you when you need them most A friend will give the last they have and, never brag or boast A friend will always love you just the way you are A friend will come to visit you no distance is too far A friend will give you the biggest hug on those days you need to cry A friend will always go with you and, never ask you why A friend will always tell you all the times that you are wrong A friend will tell you..if you can't sing when you try to sing a song A friend will argue and make you mad `til you can't stand..to see their face That's when you both..go away for a while and, give each other space It's such an amazing thing in life to have a wonderful friend Who will share the good times and the bad until the bitter end I dedicate this poem to my best Friend Greg Stack May you rest in piece Feb. 14th 2015

Hey, Roger, I have gotten way behind in comments and I think want to read a new poem of yours, but I have to get to church very soon, so I will just for now wish you a happy new year, if I didn't already. Hope you will post a new poem and let me know very soon!

First of all thank you Robin, I enjoyed writing this poem. I will try to read your poem as soon as I find more time....Hugs...Roger

yes, that is the good and bad of it. I had a very good friend like this once upon a time. But one day she got really upset by one little remark I said. Everyone I tell this to says they can't see what I said wrong. And she took it so crazy. She never talked to me again. That was the day I came to SOUP. Sometimes a friendship ends and many more begin!!
