What Are Friends For?

What are friends for? 
Someday a friend asked me.
And I said, 
I really don't know.

But they are my extended, 
Family,
Each plays a role,
Caring, loving, crazy and wise.

Sharing on my secrets,
Including me in theirs,
Tears of joy and sorrow,
With love holding my hand.

Playing pranks with me and on me,
Helping me with a smile,
Abusing me at times,
Or boosting my efforts with a kind word.

School, college, work,
Or in my neighbourhood,
The person who knew me in,
And out.

I really don't know what a friend is,
But in certain memories a person always appears,
And here in my heart,
I always feel the warmth.

  4. Reminds me of the lines I had read some where why God made friends
    And saw that we all need a helping hand,
    Someone to share with, who'll understand.

    He made special people to see us through
    The glad times and the sad times, too;

    1. A person on whom we can always depend,
      Someone we can call a friend.
      God made friends so we’ll carry a part
      Of His perfect love in all our hearts.

      Amazing Poem... Thanks to you, I came across it as well :)
