    They will
    Love you despite your imperfections
    Encourage you during life's rejections
    Tell you that you are not alone
    Make you see their smile over the telephone

    They won't
    Kick you when you're already down
    Reveal your secrets to the highest bidder in town
    Kiss you on the cheek, then stab you in the back
    Remind you of all the qualities they have, but you lack

    They can
    Tell you if you're truly being an ***
    but do so with necessary tact and class
    They can
    Make you see a brighter day
    capturing the sun and the moon in what they say

    They can't
    be replaced, they're one of a kind
    Can't forget about you, for you're often on their mind
    They can't
    know you're hurting, and not feel the pain
    Can't deny you their umbrella, if you're standing in the rain

    They are
    Friends
    Tried and true
    And to those who have
    truly been mine...
    Thank you...

    when you really think

    things aren't as bad as the seem

    because it could only be worse

    and it's nice to have friends

    people who can pick you up only the way

    nice tribute poet

    Yes, things can always be worse, let's hope for the best though. And yes it's great when friends lend an ear as well as a hand. Thank you So'ja.

    Sister Watz,
    I love this piece! The title Blessed I am, to Have Them, speaks volumes. Friends
    are diamonds in the rough for sure.
    Flow on, flow on!
    Love & Blessings,
    Drea

    Not sure what we'd do without true friends, Miss Lady. Thank you.
    It is a blessing sis Bluewater. Thank you much.
    Yes, Platinum. Sometimes we give love and don't necessarily receive the same. Thank you kindly.

    Loved this flow Sis Watz! I am a living witness that I could have NEVER gotten through without my "girls"....the ones who stuck by me and supported me even when I wasn't sure what I was doing and where I was going!

    I am truly a wealthy woman because of my friends!
