True Friends



You think of yourself as a garden of thorns,

When a true friend only sees the rose.

You think of yourself as a darkening cloud,

When a true friend sees only your sunlight.

 

You think of yourself as roaring thunder and lighting,

When a true friend only sees a rainbow.

You think you never belonged here,

When a true friend thinks the world would fall apart without you.

 

You could be crying a river,

When a true friend is the dam that stops the flow.

You could be like a dagger,

When a true friend is careful not to take the blow.

 

They'll always be there for you,

Even if you break their hearts for others who just use you.

    Wow - it's very hard to find friends to match up with this ideal!

    Excellent! Really this is the best analogy to describe true friends indeed 🙂
