A True Friend

by Brandi


I know a girl,
Who knows nothing but pain,
Whose heart is scarred,
Who’s suffering from all the strain…

I know a child,
Who cuts herself with a knife,
Who’s silently crying,
Who’s convinced there’s nothing left in life…

I know a victim,
Who cries herself to sleep at night,
Who’s afraid to put her trust in others,
Who’s beginning to give up the fight…

I know a princess,
Who had her dreams crushed
Whose dress is as torn as her paper heart
Whose running away, feeling too rushed…

I cannot say I know what its like,
I cannot make all the hurt go away,
I cannot fight her battles for her,
I cannot force her to stay…

But I can be there for her,
To help her through thick and thin,
To soothe her throbbing wounds,
To help keep her from falling in…

I can offer her a shoulder to cry on,
I can offer her someone to talk to,
I can reassure her, and comfort her,
And I can pray for her, no matter what she may do…

She may not realize it yet,
It may take a while,
But no matter what,
I will not stop until I can make her smile

I will care for her,
Stand by her side until the end,
I will not leave her alone in the dark,
Because that, is what makes A True Friend.

This poem is absolutely beautiful! You have some rare talent, Brandi. You've perfectly described what a true friend is. My only suggestion is work on your rhyming to make it flow more easily. Great job!!
Love, a sister in Christ
