A True Friend

In life, its not the obvious things
that are important,
It's the seemingly insignificant
and often unseen things
that we appreciate.




The friend who asks us
how we are and genuinely wants
to know the answer.


The friend with the shoulder
wet from our tears
who makes time to listen to us again.


The friend who smiles
with their eyes
as well as their mouth.










The friend who says "I care"
simply by being there for you.


But most important of all
is the friend who knows you
with all your imperfections and shortcomings
and still loves you,
just the way you are.
