About the Poem

A true friendship that lasts throughout the years is rare indeed, and to be treasured as a priceless gift.

I am a senior citizen, and I love the Internet, as it is my path to the outside world and my social life. Deaf since I was a teen, I have found it does not matter here that I can not hear, and I have many cyber-friends.

My Friend

We all need someone
To talk to in our life,
A friend to whom we run
In times of stress or strife

A friend who's always there
Throughout the years,
A friend we know will care
And take away our fears.

A friend who's always near,
Waiting for our call,
To wipe away our tears,
And lift us when we fall.

A loving friend indeed,
On whom we can depend
To fulfill our every need -
Thank you, precious friend

your poem is really great. it touches my heart.
This poem was so touching. My mother-in-law for the past three years had depression and dementia and was cared for by a friend who was also her neighbor. She relied on her to test her blood, give her her medicine, and in the last year or so, prepare her meals. She was so grateful to her. She passed away this April, and we are having a memorial and wanted to give the friend something special. This poem along with some pictures in a nice frame is what we will present her with. Thank you
