If a friend will not take up your cause
Or risk their own comfort for your survival
If they leave you alone in distress
Only take from you what is easy and gainful
Won’t walk even the first mile in less than perfect weather
Best you know soon and walk on alone
Keep up acquaintance
But hold your heart and your secrets
For the true blue
Who love you in the good
Stand by when darkness threatens overhead
Friends to be trusted with the heart are so rare
When found
Lock arms and shelter
Give your best in their worst
Be all you desire in a friend
Even if someone you do right
Does wrong along the way
If you’ve given love’s treasures
They are sure to find the path back
Sow with reaping in view

The heart needs a safe circle
With those in it whom wish it well
To care and love and do good to one another
Sharing the joys and blows
It’s a moving thing
The sphere of trust
Friends move in and out during the seasons tumults
Few stay as near as we wish
For life pushes us with time and distance
When we realize a page had turned
Hearts still care
Yet clearly things are different
We can be thankful for each moment shared
Look with expectancy for the new possibilities ahead
With gratitude knowing that if we stay open and willing
In time our circle will again be joined
By the friends we can walk with through what lies ahead
