Friends

This poem comes from Autumn Leaves:

 

Friends are those

Who’ll share joy or troubles.

With the help of friends,

One’s strength doubles.

 

Friends who listen

To both problems and trial,

No argument, cajoling,

No attempt to beguile.

 

Friends are those tested,

Who rise to the task

Answer the call,

Lending support without being asked.

 

Helping each other when necessary,

No apology or amend.

It’s easy to share troubles

With a close, cherished friend.

 

Living without friends

Is true sadness indeed,

For they share in your joy,

Sympathize with your need.

 

Remember — friends can’t be purchased,

For, if they could, what price?

To stand solidly beside you

Thirty times thrice.

I was born in a small town in southern Mississippi, but I have traveled the world and completed a career in the U.S. Air Force. I am always exploring and learning new things. From the time I was a young man, I always had the desire to write. With my writing, I want the reader to know that I wish to light a candle in the darkness and hopefully enable others to enjoy life more.
