A True Friend

Poem By Tom Maxwell

As we age in this life, we discover who our real friends are, the people who care about us, and not because of our house or a car.

A true friend will volunteer to help, in our times of need, always has patience to listen and never shows any greed.

A caring friend will always be there, whenever we start to fall, they will change their plans and come so fast and all we have to do is call.

They will take time to advise us, when our lives are drifting the wrong way, and if we are not to blind at the time, we will feel the love in the words they say.

A person you can trust with your possessions or thoughts that you hold so near, and knowing what you say in private, will never pass another ear.

Even the best of friends won't always agree, with all the temptations that pass us each day, remember a day are two of excitement, is never worth chasing a true friend away.

We will all have many acquaintances, as we go through our life and time,a true friend will touch your soul, with love,
leaving memories of smiles forever dancing in your mind.

Dreams & Plans

When you want, something new in your life,
You must be open, to change,
You can't' just rely on others,
To follow, and rearrange.

Look Past The Stars

Many times, when we are lost,
We look up, to stare at the sky,
All we can see, are the clouds, passing by,
Never giving a thought of, other planets, up so high.

Friends That Touch Our Heart

We use to be close, always together,
Shared good times, and helped each other, through bad weather.
There were few days, you would see us apart,
We had a friendship that connected, right from the start.

Always Listen

Always Listen

We create our own ambitions,
Convincing ourselves, what we would like to achieve,


I made it to my 60's still doing ok,
Changing identity, another time, along the way.
Who you are, is what you actually do every day,
The natural habits, you automatically sway to,

Why Are You Here?

How long could you keep others interested,
Discussing, hobbies, personal things you do,
Not those once a year, experiences,
The things you create, build, work on,
