a friend would take your tears
carry them in his heart
ease away your fears
never drift apart
even if he don’t see you
as much as he’d like
he will still carry you
within his heart….
a friend would challenge
even Divinity
on your behalf
would believe in you
even if you don’t
would smile for you
when your own smile
hides away
would lead you back
when you walk astray…

What would a friend do?
give himself unconditionally

I share this old poem to celebrate International Friend Day today. Thank you to all my friends. You all made my life richer, you all are loved, you all are appreciated. With love, Allen
