A True Friend
I cannot erase the past,
Though we wish to forget,
Memories often do last.
I cannot undo the pain of yesterday,
But I will stand by your side,
And help you get through today.
I cannot promise you
That you will never hurt again,
But I promise to stand by you,
And to always be your friend.
I cannot promise that you will
Only have good days,
But if the storms of life arise,
I promise I will be unwavering,
And true friendship will abide.
I will be like a tree firmly planted in the ground
on whose branches, you can hold on.
I will be there for you always,
And I will always be your friend.
In these trying times we all can use a friend. So many have suffered loss during this pandemic. Sometimes all someone need, is a listening ear, a friend who understands.
