Cherish the friends you can count on.
The numberíll be only a few.
Others are false with their feelings.
Sincerity nowhere in view.

Put your trust in loyal people.
Waste not your time on others who flee.
When rough times are stubbornly lurking
Alone and afraid you will be.

Be guarded when seeking assurance
From peers who are hollow and cold.
Advice will surely point inward.
Selfish motives forever untold.

Honor that one faithful person
Whose hands you can put all your trust.
The chance may come once in a lifetime.
A gift, solid as the earthís crust.

Look within yourself for comfort
If you fail to find friendship elswhere.
You are your one true confidant.
Strong commitment you'll always find there.

In response to your comment on one of my comments, it looks by this poem that God is NOT very good at supplying your friends and you must...

your quote:

Look within yourself for comfort
If you fail to find friendship elsewhere.
You are your one true confidant.
Strong commitment you'll always find there

Exactly the point I was making, reiterated by yourself!

Ivor
