About the Poem

This poem was inspired by my friend who I sadly have no contact with anymore...

Not Perfect

There are many ways to describe a friend
There are many wise sayings that help us understand

But the truth beyond it all
Is that a friend
Is so much more
Its more than a caring touch
its more than a friendly smile

When you have one true friend
Its more than your share, they say
Many of us have friends who are
Less than perfect, we might as well say

Sometimes they manage to stab us in the back
Sometimes they fail to comfort us in time of need
Sometimes they fail to heal our wounds when we bleed

We all need friends as they need us
We aren't perfect neither are they
But no matter how imperfect
True friends will remain true friends
........ Forever

This poem just really hit home. One of my good friends is having alot of problems, and was stabbing me in the back for a few months, but is now coming around. I sent her this poem, because it really said what I had to say. It's great! Good Work!
