What exactly is a friend, from a non-religious stand point? Is it just someone to talk to? Is it someone to share a secret with? Maybe it's someone to have an experience.
Sometimes we may ask ourselves, who is a true friend? Who helps us out, and listens to us? Who's willing to be there, even in the darkest moments of our lives, no matter what it is? Who is there to comfort and support us when we are down?
Friends are people that are like you,
They don’t ignore you when you’re apart,
Friends would always be there for you,
Even when the world’s against you.
Friends would never leave you standing alone,
At no place, at anytime whatsoever.
They would help you in times of need,
No matter what the need is.
If you got hurt, they would worry,
And not say that you are clumsy and stupid.
True friends would help you when you’re having a bad day,
They wouldn’t even think about making jokes.
Friends would hope that you want,
And that you may never change.
There is a song, by Michael W Smith, Friends.
