"I have a dream"- MLK

A pal is one
With whom you can have fun
Who'll listen to you and talk
With whom you can share a joke
One you can drink with
And who with you will dine
One with whom all will look rosy
All pretty and all fine...

But when comes adversity
You'll seldom find him by your side
And even if stay does she,
Not long will she abide.

A true friend is one
With whom you can talk
'bout all under the sun
With whom you can laugh and joke
Drink, dine and have fun
And who to you will lend a ear
With her all will be alright'.

Then, when hardship knocks...
You'll find her by your side
You know she'll never leave
But try best to you guide
When you sigh, she'll too heave
When you fail to succeed
She'll try to bring to fruition
Your deed
When you fall sick
She'll bring relief
When the whole world mocks,
She'll stand by your belief
If all else the other way looks
She'll share your grief
Even if harm befalls ye
She'll stand in its way
And will not hesitate even a bit
To endanger her life, to lay down it.
And prove that a friend in need
Is a friend indeed!

Such a friend is hard to come by
Who'll laugh with you, with you who'll cry
So if ever one you get,
Try to be worthy of your mate
And see that never breaks the bond
That you with her ties fond.
