Poem Commentary

Many people claim to be your friend, but most are just friendly aquaintances, what is really a true friend of the heart and soul???

What Is A True Friend

A true friend is always there for you,
A true friend is someone you can lean on for a shoulder to cry,
A true friend is there to lift you up when the going gets tough,
A true friend is someone you can rely on always,
A true friend loves you not for what you do but who you are,
A true friend is not the judge nor the jury but just there to listen.

A true friend is worth giving all that I have,
All that I want and all that I need,
Yet they require nothing but my friendship in return.

Will you be my true friend?
Will I ever find my true friend???

Donna, you have set the bar very high for a true friend. But then, that is how it should be. Harv

Hello my new friend! Your poem expresses every belief I have about what makes a true friend. It really struck a chord with me because I just finished writing a long letter to someone who at one time was the living example of your words. Somewhere along the way I lost her. That letter was one of the hardest things I've done and when I dropped it in the mail slot it was a very sad time for me. Thanks for sharing and if you are fortunate enough to have a true friend, treasure that friendship and take good care of it. Beautiful job. Julie

Thank you for the comment hip.

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
