If You Need A Friend

If You Need A Friend short poem

Photo by RM Ampongan

He looks like he could use a friend
Every time I see him he always looks in
A sad, sad way.
Well I try to talk to him but the kinda
Hard to talk to. How do I tell him I think
He’s really, really cool?
It just kills me to see him so morose
Every time I see him again I wish I could
Tell him you don’t have to be lonely…
Don’t be lonely now ‘cuz If You Need A
Friend I’ll Be Your Friend!
If you need a buddy to share your
Secrets with I’m all ears and if you need
A buddy to do things with I promise
I’ll never disappear. If you need a brother
Like the brother you never had…well your
Brother is here!
If you need a kindred spirit to quite your
Fears I will do my best to make your nightmares
Disappear and when you can’t think straight
I will guide you ’til you know why you are here.
I could be wrong but you look like you need a
Friend. How do I tell you then If You Need A
Friend I will be your friend, never expecting
Anything in return. If You Need a Friend
I will be your friend ’til the end!
