Dear Friends

Dear Friends short poem

At the lowest ebb
In the flowing stream
Comes a stab of pain
To make him scream

Pills and potions
Just dont seem to work
And he’s pushed to the point
Of going berserk

Yet surrounded by love
And dear caring friends
With genuine offers
Their ears, to lend

So touching and deep
To help him they try
So fragile as to make
A grown man cry

Never a day goes by
That he doesn’t give thought
To how fortunate he is
To have so much support

Beneath all the pain
And discomfort he fends
To have so many
Dear and wonderful friends

@dartherino, the thought that “friends in need are friends indeed” might be so hackneyed many times over to use at this juncture in time (another hackneyed phrase), but we take exception as it relates so well to the situation at hand. Friends could cushion the blow that Fate may deal us. Unfortunately, other wisdom may counter this, but let that be for some other time. Let’s bask on the delight given off by this one.
