Very touching, short but sweet. It is very true that friends help a lot ease the pain. They help in different ways, but all work and mean the same thing. They show us that they love us, for what we are and nothing else. We will do the same for the them, the day that they will need us, as we have needed them. I shall always keep this poem close to my heart.
