What is a friend?

by Rachel RTVW   Dec 18, 2006


Someone who will lend an ear, to problems no one else can hear.
Someone who can lend their voice, when you find it hard to speak.
Someone who can be your rock, when you're feeling very weak.

Someone who can lend a hand, to hold yours cause they understand.
Someone who can lend a smile, if only for a little while.
Someone who can lend their heart, to give you strength when you're apart.

Someone who will give you sun, when you're followed by a cloud.
Someone who knows what you're saying, when it's not even out loud.
Someone who will love you, for the beauty that's within.
Someone who will be with you, until the very end.

If you have this special someone, then you're the luckiest indeed.
With this kind of a blessing. you have no choice but to succeed.

    This poem is extremely sweet. Friends are angels without wings. :) I'm returning the favor of course... Thank you for the comment. Your poem was simply beautiful. I really enjoyed this part:

    Someone who will give you sun, when you're followed by a cloud.

    It was my favorite part because I kinda thought it was catchy and that it was a unique way of saying how a friend will bring you up when your feeling down. :) I liked how you added a little rhyming in there it helped the flow a lot.

    Excellent Write

    Aww what a sweet poem, I loved it. "Someone who can lend their voice, when you find it hard to speak." That was my favorite line. This poem was very well written and flowed beautifully, the structure and flow were flawless. I did however find a mistake:

    Someone who can lend their heart, to give you strength when your apart.

    Instead of "your" I believe it should be "you're"

    Great work, i loved it.
