What is a friend?
A close companion for the road.
A stone wall strong against the night…
A hand stretched out to ease the load.
A torch to keep the path in sight
Right to the end.

What is a friend?
A quiet pool by which to rest
And leave away the journeys dust.
A fragrant breeze to give us zest.
A sparkling spring, a draught we trust
Our thirst to mend.

What is a friend?
A steady compass, tested, sure.
A lifeboat swung against the side
An anchor which we feel secure
A haven where we safely ride
And leisure spend.

What is a friend?
A mighty tree that spreads its shade
To shelter us as wing-tired birds.
A song of gladness undismayed.
A silence more profound than words.

This is a friend.
