Beside, in front, not far behind

A good friend, as a rule, is kind

But also strong when needs to be

A bastion of sincerity

With glance or nod and gentle word

Yet needs not always to be heard

A presence felt, just being there

That shows how much they really care

If shoulders bear a weight unseen

Sometimes bowed, still sharp and keen

A friend will offer reinforcement

Assistance and encouragement

In times of trouble, or in gladness

A lifeline in those times of sadness

Forged long ago or newly made

A contract that need not be paid

Devotion that is born of chance

Benefits more than it grants

Tend friendships well, keep in good health

They mean as much as life itself!
