Someone who always listens,
never to tired or busy,
to hear about your day.
Never never turns you away.

Someone who is always just a phone call away.

Turns your tears to smiles.
Brings you sunshine on a cloudy day.

Someone who stands beside you,
no matter if you are right or wrong.
When you are weak they are strong.

Someone who who can give a little shove,
hold you back with a gentle tug.

Someone who is with you
as you blossom and grow.
Someone who sees the real beauty
beneath the budding rose.

Someone who crys with you,
who helps pick up the pieces
of your broken heart.
Laughs with you when the tears have stopped.

Someone who has open arms,
Shoulders strong.
Always has a place where you belong.

Someone who will always be there.
Someone who simply says... I love you

Betty...This is a lovely poem. I know this feeling, this friend. You've basically read my mind.

Thanks to dsnyder, Pepper, and suthern for the kind words.

To you I apologize for the slow reply, but I just pulled a triple shift at work. Please forgive me for the slow response. Again thank you.
