Come lean on me my friend
I am here for you
Take my arm when you falter
And miss a step or two
When the pain becomes too much to bear
And your courage beings to wane
Shed your tears upon my shoulder
There is no need to explain

If you give in to despair
When there's no relief in sight
I'll try my best to comfort you
And try to make things right
I will gladly share this burden
That fate has decreed for you
For I know if our roles reversed
You would be there for me too

True friendship never dies
And love will see us through
You only have to call on me
I'll always be there for you

A Friend In Need
Thanks Kacee. I learned long ago that to have a must BE a friend and all that it implies.

I still keep in touch with most of my childhood friends, tho they are scattered all over the country..and sadly...some are no longer with us...but they live on in my heart.

Thanks Lucie & chapter1
Lucie, Friendship is a two way street. Most of the time, it requires nothing else but your presence and the fact that they can always count on you.

Thanks for the 10 chapter1...much appreciated!

I used 3 tissues before completing this one! It's breathtaking and perfect! Now this is true friendship! I know this because of my bestfriend. If she were physically able, she would do for me, as I do for her. We are inseparable, alike and different at the same time. We giggle. laugh, cry, gossip about old boyfriends, cook, compliment each other with truths, sing, shop, holler and hug together. We say "I love you" and we're not gay, just happy to have had (so far 13 yrs) as friends. I tell her "I won't leave this world, if you promise not to leave", then we laugh about it. We lean on each other for support and it's never one-sided. I would trust her with my life and she has trusted me with hers. What a wonderful and inspirational friendship poem. Thank you so much for helping me not lose faith in others having a friendship as we share! I WOULD LIKE PERMISSION TO EMAIL THIS POEM TO MY BESTFRIEND. Please reply as soon as you can. Thank you.

Love Is A Friend
Thanks PaulaAnn for commenting, and of course you can send this to your friend.
That's why I write them, to bring solace and comfort where needed.
