A Friend

Tynea Lewis

A friend is someone who
listens to our troubles,
cares about our days,
trusts it will all work out,
responds with advice,
hugs when we need comfort,
talks late into the night,
encourages us with smiles,
dreams with us,
runs to our side,
laughs at our jokes,
carries us when we can’t stand,
makes memories,
holds us accountable.
A friend is always there.
A friend is God’s gift to us.
