A friend to me is someone I trust
to help me find a pathway through life’s hiccups.
An advisor who will tell me the truth
whatever that may be.
When things go astray, thoughts are hidden,
a friend to talk to so I speak out without fear.
When others urge to do the unbidden,
truth is all that is left to me.
I may not like what I hear, an anathema;
but the voice whispers that which is just.
So perhaps when listening I can find my salvation.
A friend to me is someone I trust.
