 True Friend




A true friend knows you

and loves you anyway

They don’t listen

to what the gossips say



A true friend never assumes

They will always ask

They don’t see helping you out

As just some noble task



A true friend cares

When you’re feeling down

They won’t be a judge

When they can be a clown



A true friend will listen

For as long as it takes

And won’t down play

Your deepest heartaches



A true friend will stand by your side

Through thick and thin

They will always try to help you smile

Help you grin



A true friend will have a hug ready

For when you’re blue

And they can say ‘sorry’

If they’ve hurt you



A true friend will ask

Rather than tell

They will give you dignity

And treat you well



A true friend will try to understand

Where you’ve come from

And they won’t desert you

On those days you don’t feel so strong



A true friend is not possessive

They are happy to share

They know from experience

You will always be there



A true friend lives

And let’s live

And they will always appreciate

The little you can give



A true friend wants to know

All about you

And they are happy

To let you shine too



A true friend doesn’t insist

On everything their way

They give thought

To the words they say



A true friend respects

Your opinion too

But that doesn’t mean

They must always agree with you



A true friend is always there

No matter the mistakes you make

For them it’s never

Too little or too late



A true friend is easy

And gives you a place to belong

They make an effort to be tactful

When telling you you’re wrong



A true friend chooses to let go

Your little faults and failings

They don’t expect life

To always be smooth sailing



A true friend knows

That they’re imperfect too

And so they always look

For the good in you



A true friend can over look

The stupid things you say

A true friend knows you

And loves you anyway








“It is one of the blessings of old friends

That you can afford to be stupid with them.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson



“You can always tell a real friend:

When you’ve made a fool of yourself

He doesn’t feel you’ve done a permanent job”

– Laurence J. Peter



“A true Friend unbosoms freely,

Advises justly,

Assists readily,

Adventures boldly,

Takes all patiently,

Defends courageously,

And continues a friend unchangeably”

– William Penn



“If you’re alone, I’ll be your shadow.

If you cry, I’ll be your shoulder.

If you want a hug, I’ll be your pillow.

If you need to be happy,

I’ll be your smile.

But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me”

– Anon
