True Friends

True Friends

Friends will come and friends will go like the passing years.

But true friends stand the test of time through smiles and the tears.

In both good times and the bad a true friend is always there

To share a laugh or wipe a frown and show how much they care.

In a world where life is tough and people grow unkind,

I have learned without a doubt true friendship’s hard to find.

This is why when late at night before my prayer ends

I thank God with all my heart for my truest friends.

Thanks for sharing your gifts, David! You make the world a better place! 

xoxo Pam
