"A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.”

A Friend:

A friend is someone kind; a friend is someone true,
A friend may not always be loving, but is always there for you,
A friend is sometimes hurtful and will at times let you down,
But a friend is always there to pick you up off the ground,

A friend is good at forgiving; I know this to be true,
When the world seems utterly hopeless a friend comes shinning through,
A friend will make you laugh; a friend will make you cry,
A friend will never leave you when others pass you by.
A friend knows all your secrets and even knows your fears,
A friend will never judge you; even through the years,
A friend is more than family; a friend is more than luck,
For it’s a friend in whom we place our dreams when others say they suck.

Ok, when I wrote this poem I was feeling kinda down. I've been burned one 2 many times by people who call themseleves my "friend". I wanted to write about what I thought a true friend would be like. So, here it is. I hope you all like it!
