True Friend

Sometimes when you least expect
A true friend comes along
And even though you have no proof
You know you can't be wrong,
For in his eyes there shines a light
That's honest, pure and true,
And in your heart you understand -
This friend was meant for you;

Sometimes you get lucky
Though you really don't know why
And your life becomes enriched by one
Who may have passed you by -
What brings about the circumstance
That causes you to grow
From some mere, by chance encounter
With a stranger you don't know?

Sometimes you stop to listen
And you listen with your heart,
Sometimes you stop to smell that rose
And the fragrance it imparts,
Sometimes you run into a friend
And have the sense to see
That all the grand things in your life
Are where they ought to be;

For sometimes when you least expect
A true friend comes along
And even though you have no proof
You know you can't be wrong,
For in his eyes there shines a light
That's honest, pure and true,
And in your heart you understand
This friend was meant for you.



I imagine your eyes to be beautiful and caring my friend.
Thanks for the inspiration - good medicine.

Is friendship simply a 'chance encounter' or something meant to be? Either way, it should be cherished. Great poem, Linda! ! Brian

Sometimes you can see someone's heart between the lines, and you know the sincerity which pumped the ink from the nib. Danny
Excellent write, brilliant flow, and thoughtfully laid out.
What a lovely thought...I often think how lucky I am to have 'discovered' certain friends, and I always try to remember to be thankful for them. This is a really good reminder of how lucky we can be sometimes.
