A lot has been said and done about friendships and a lot more still should be found out and proven. But what, in fact, is a friend? I kept my fingers busy on the keyboard and the words appeared on the blank space of the monitor that reads: "I need a friend". Can you be?
I need a friend--a friend can be
Someone sticking through thick and thin
When life gets tough and rough and dark--
And shares with all my joys and pains.
I need a friend who understands
And listens from within the heart--
The comfort that I needed most--
In times when I was torn apart.
I need a friend whom I can love
And give the best that I can be
When life sometimes may seem unfair--
I need someone like you for me.
