Faithful Friend


One all-important part of life... Is that of being true... In
every way to everyone... Who is a friend to you... To show
appreciation by returning kindly deeds... And being quite
concerned about... The other person's needs... By being honest
and sincere... Dependable and fair... And thereby letting it be
known... How much you really care... Because the path of
friendship is... A path that never bends... A path that does not
rise or fall... And one that never ends... And whether joy or
tragedy... Is knocking on the door... The friendship that is
faithful will... Endure for evermore.
