A Friend

A poem I wrote over 15 years ago would probably sum up what most people need when they are going through what appears to be rough times. Even when we are going through good times most people want to be able to share them with someone else. It’s good to know that someone has your back. Friendship can be a life line  and good friends are a gift. People may not be perfect but life is so much more interesting with them. Friends and family can form your closest support and encouragement group.  It’s important however, to be on the same frequency. In Pauls letter to the Romans, Paul made a statement which highlights the fundamental principles of true friendship.

Romans 1:11-12 (NKJV)

For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established— that is, that I may be encouraged together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.

A Friend

A shoulder to lean on,

A voice to hear,

Someone to embrace and lend an ear.

A breast to cry on,

A hand to hold,

A warm place to be,

When feeling cold.

An understanding heart to hug,

A squeeze to offer,

A sleeve to tug.

An object to fill a vacuumed mind,

To help to search for what to find.

Someone who wants to do a deed,

To take away a strongest need.

But most of all,

Someone who shares,

Your hopes, your dreams, your life

your cares.

Be Encouraged
