A Friend's Promise


In all of creation
There never has been
A kinder, more true soul
Than yours, my friend.

I have truly been blessed
To have ever known you at all
With you in my life,
I can fly and not fall.

So to you who have given
Such peace and joy to me,
From the depths of my soul
This I promise to thee.

I will always be faithful
To our friendship true
If  ever you need me
I will fly to you.

I will always be loyal
To the friendship we share
Always right beside you,
You will find me there.

I will always be truthful
In my actions and deeds
You have my highest respect;
You, I will not deceive.

I will always be giving
If  ever anything you need
Be it in my power
Then by my hand you shall receive.

I will always be understanding
When you need someone to listen
I will be your strength to lean on
And you I will never question.

This promise I make to you
With all my heart, unconditionally;
Never will our bond be broken,
I shall be your friend eternally.

I only want to say once more
It is the greatest gift known to man;
You have given me your friendship
And to you I give all that I am.

Wonderful entrance to our family of friends.
With a friend like this ...

Lovely writing.

This is a great poem and is good to know there are really people that you can honestly call your "friends" out there.

Just wanted to thank everyone once again for their kind words on this poem.  This is one of my most favorites that I have ever written.  You are all wonderful friends, so i want you all to think it is for you.
