Who is a friend?

It is someone who makes you happy when you hear their voice

Who is interested in what you have to say

Who cares when things go wrong for you

Who is happy for your victories and successes

Who wants to know what you are doing

Who is there to talk to you

And who grieves when bad fortune comes your way

And who will remember you every day

When you have departed this planet for another place


That is a friend.
