Thursday= Poem Day


A Friend


Published: November 2007

A friend like you is hard to find,
one that touches you deep inside.
You've given me strength to carry on,
you've offered your hand to hold on.
When times are tough, I know you're there
to offer support and show you care.
If not for you, I would have drowned,
but you help keep me on solid ground.
I believe you were sent from the man above
because he knows the strength of your love.
You show that love in so many ways.
It helps me get through my darkest of days.
So for that, I write this poem for you
and tell you from my heart, THANK YOU!
