A Good Friend…

wants you to live a more joyful life

doesn’t let their own fear keep them from you

will endure

will be refreshed at your waking up

act awkwardly or angrily when you show your pride

-or maybe, if you’ve got a really good friend,

they will act with love.-

will treat you as old as you behave

while holding on to hope that you will have a birthday.

will find themselves in you and you in them

will find a way to reach into you

will become you.
