A Friend 

  One who knows when to leave you alone 
  one who stays when the truth is known, 

  One who gives for no reason at all
  the one you hang onto after you fall, 
  One who lets you laugh and cry
  one who gives you things you can't buy, 
  One who accepts you as wiseman and fool 
  and doesn't need to see you 'show',
  One whose arm you'd hold on a cliff
  one whose words you don't have to sift, 
  Simply a person who's always there
  with words or silence, love and care, 
  The one who stays way past the end
  is the one you can always call---- 
  Your Friend.
