A True Friend
A true friend –
Is one who understands where you have been, accepts
Who you have become, and loves you unconditionally as
you are. He does not wish you ‘luck’ as you step out into
the unknown…he walks into the void by your side. he will
not offer distractions, nor easy advice in your time of
need…instead he will pray for wisdom, born of compassion
and a willingness to take your pain upon himself.
Such a friend will always speak of you when you are not
present, as though you were, and though he may not always
share your sunny days, he will always be there to help you
through the stormy ones. He is not skeptical of your blooming,
nor jealous of your shining apart from him, for he seeks not
to steal your joy, but to multiply it.
It has been well said that there is no greater love than
this…for a true friend does not take life from you,
he gives you his own.
