Stand By Me

Whether I'm right, whether I'm wrong,
You stand by me, so easy to find,
like the repeating words of a song,
always right here on my mind.

Daylight shines and again, I see your face,
night comes near and still you stand by,
forever, with arms awaiting an embrace,
even if stones were falling from the sky.

You're feet never tire, they never ache,
as you stand by me for endless years,
steady and strong, even if the ground should quake,
now I have a reason to never shed tears.

That ocean was deep, but you pulled me through,
and saved a life that was sinking fast,
you just stand by me and I'm no longer blue,
a feeling that I want to ever last.

Because, my friend, you are so ideal,
with promises that stay unbroken,
I often wonder, how can you be real?,
a question that will go unspoken.

Whether I'm right, whether I'm wrong,
you stand by me, so easy to find,
like the repeating words of a song,
always right here on my mind.

Thank you for your kind comments, Matthew... I was inspired to write this poem after listening to the classic song, "Stand By Me" by Ben E. King.

It is nice to hear that you are enjoying my poems, my friend. Thank you very much for your kind words :)

Your poems get better all the time, Kelly! Those little nuances, comparisons, allegories, the amount of feeling expressed. These would make ideal song lyrics too, especially with that catchy chorus.

That is what true friends are for, Kelly! Loyalty and trust play a big part in a close relationship. Of course, it has to operate on a mutual understanding. #7 // paul

Where would we be without our true friends who stand by us, no matter what? I think that trust has to be earned over time, and forgiveness plays a big part in close friendships, too... I do appreciate your kind words and the 7 rating. Thank you, Paul!

I really appreciate your kind words, Sara. Thank you very much!... I am sponsoring the "Stand By Me" contest, so I will not be entering. I was inspired to use this as a theme while I was writing the poem.

This contest is being sponsored by me, and this poem was actually written first and it inspired the contest theme. Even if I could enter my own contest, I don't think that I would win! :)
