Being A True Friend…


One who is closer than a brother

 is a real friend.

One who’ll be there for you

till the very end!


One who shares your joy

and each trial…

One who’ll go,

“the extra mile.”


When talking about you, he’ll

speak words so good.

He won’t gossip or slander

 you as others would.


I great quality in this friend…

 You will find.

He’ll be gracious to you! 

Loving and kind!


In you, he’ll look for what is the best…

He’ll still love you!

And won’t settle for less!


This friend I speak of…

You may want to see!

His name is Jesus!. And your friend… 

He wants to be!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
