Thursday's Words


A Friend Is...

© Chloe G. Railsback
A friend is a person
who has always has your back,
a person
who has faith in you and says that you can.

A friend is a person
who points you onward, instead of leading you askew,
a person
who gives you hope to see the journey through.

A friend is a person
who helps you up when you've fallen,
a person
who cheers you up when you're sullen.

A friend is a person
who even though all have passed,
still cheers you on,
even if you're in last.

A friend is a person
who remembers what you knew,
a person
who stands by you and forgets every feud.
