A Friend

If it's my time first, to leave this earth
Then I'll wait for you by the gates
If they insist I come in
I'll explain that a friend
Shared their heart till the end,
And I'll wait for as long as it takes
For who would I be
To let a friend search for me
Never knowing if I'll see their face
So I can't go alone
Till my friend walks me home
Hand in hand, down the road, pass the gates

And if you go first, remember these words
I'll find you, whatever it takes
To be with a friend
Who shared their heart to the end
Only time can keep me away,
So just wait by the gates
And I'll see you someday
Just insist, that you can't go in,
Cause there's a friend left behind
Who needs their hand placed in mine,
And I can't go alone
Till my friend walks me home
Hand in hand, down the road, pass the gates

A friend in need is a friend indeed. A good friend is almost the equal of a good and happy family. I like the articulation of the poem and the conviction of the poet. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
Great poem written well with nice texture and imagery. I really liked and rated it 10. Thanks for sharing..... Kindly read and rate my poem 'Abortion' on page 4.
