A Friend

A Friend short poem

Uploaded by Mario Fontenla

A friend
Only someone who is honest, direct and correct with us is our true friend
And not someone who just speaks words of love in order to get something in return at the end
A friend will warn you when you’re wrong and encourage you when you’re acting grand
She will advise you when wandering off the right path you tend
But she will not get insulted if some steam you let off your mind
Yet she will always maintain such a perspective with a respectful and nice trend
And in order to keep such a friend you must return the favor in kind
Or no friend will stay long if you do not try her aching heart mend
Kiss her, hug her and take good care of her good heart until the end
And she will stick with you for as long as you intend
But forget to speak to her like a gentlemen or like you not give a damn
And no real lady will care about you even slightly to any extend.
