They love you When you defend them They run When you need a helping hand Real ones are there in total silence Called the silent ones To massage the pain Inside Of a wounded soul They were there long ago They are there now in the snow Holding hands Never letting go Friends Wiping tears Striking fears Praying for good cheer Please me lord Serve me one more beer

I'm sorry if a "friend" has done you wrong, Arthur. Hope this is fiction. Interesting write though. Well written.

A too true poem. Your words are sad because they are true. I know you have great friends Arthur because you are a great person.

<3 Art This is so sad! True friends are like family - they are there for the good, the bad and the ugly!

That last line is awesome :) and true, some friends are just there to use you for their needs, but the real one sticks no matter :)

Your true friends stand by through thick or thin, steal your beer and make you grin.
