A good friend indeed,
helps a friend in need.
A friend who is willing to give his heart and soul,
to help out a friend stuck in a hole.
A friend who will try with all of his might,
to help a friend fight a good fight.
A friend who is always there,
helping a friend lost in despair.
Author's Notes:

To dave, Mike, Tom, Jim, Gee, Murph, and Joe, my best friends of 23 years. I would be dead without you! Joe

I should have read this poem before posting 'Why?'. Maybe I'm just too good of a friend or something, 'cause I do this but no one's ever done this for me. Huh.

It is so good to know that you have good friends who care about you and will always be there. I am sure that your friends appreciate you expressing your feelings toward needing them as much as I did for you sharing them with me. Thank you

Good friends are like molten gold..filling all the gaps and holes left by the hard knocks of life, keeping you whole and pulling you through.
A wonderful dedication...
Cheers to good friends!

Good friend does help a friend in need
Giving his heart and soul just may get him hurt
A friend can try with all his mite
but in the end it just drives the other to drink
oh crap I'm already there ... want some Rum & Coke?
