~ What Do We Want From A Friend? ~
 
That is a question we often will ask.
And, what do we need from a friend?
Loyalty, we know that is true.
But, is that enough in the end?
 
We know there must be trust
So secrets we can safely share.
And, when we are sad and hurt
That someone is there to care.
 
We want a friend to feel our joy
When happiness comes our way.
When we complete a difficult chore.
It's a cheering friend that "makes our day".
 
We want to know there will be a hand
Held out to us when trouble brings on fear.
When everything in life feels so empty
We need to feel their spirit hover near.
 
But, along with all the rest of these,
It must include a special kind of love.
Hard to explain, but, one that you know
Comes as a blessing from heaven above. 
So, if you have found a special one
Who shares these things with you,
Make sure your words are always kind
And deeds are helpful that you do.
 
While friendship bonds may feel strong
They are also very fragile, it is true.
A thoughtless word, an unkind deed,
And a friends heart can be broken by you.
