The Golden Commodity
A true friend gives what is needed.
One may not know him as a friend;
do as the Good Samaritan,
healing aid readily extend.
The bond may not be direct. He,
a true friend, gives what is needed.
Kindness distributed can be
tender words, food to eat, money.
Compassion, more than being nice,
is a golden commodity
a true friend gives. What is needed
are more willing to sacrifice.
Invest true measures of yourself--
patient love--into those you meet;
these words have worth! Dare I repeat,
a true friend gives what is needed.
