What Makes A Friend, A Friend
A true friend is more, way more than you think.
They’re watching your back, especially when you blink.
At your best and worst times, they’re there by your side.
When you get yourself into trouble, they help save your hide.
True friends are crying with you, comforting when you’re sad.
They’re angry too when you want to scream or yell, when you’re mad.
A friend won’t lie to you; they’ll be straight up, to your face.
They’ll tell you when you’re doing good, or when it’s time to pick up the pace.
They’re there when disaster strikes, when your world is crashing down.
No one else could cheer you up, making a smile out of your frown.
There aren’t enough words to describe how a true friend makes you feel.
They’re the ones you’re always with, constantly, even sharing a meal.
To make it through life, friends are a necessity; you have to have at least one.
Otherwise, without a friend, you won’t survive; you’re done.
When a friend comes over to your house, you’re more than just guest and host.
You’re both more like family; your connection is deeper than most.
When you’ve had a bad day, and you want a way out,
A friend will be there for you; they’ll make you want to laugh and shout.
When you’ve lost all hope, and fear that this is the end,
They pull you through, because that’s what they do, it’s who they are, a friend.
