Walking With A Friend

Don't walk in front of me,
I may not follow.

Don't walk behind me,
I may not lead.

Just walk beside me and be my friend.

A real friend is someone who walks in
when the rest of the world walks out.

Forgiveness is the glue,
that repairs broken relationships.

Nature has given to men one tongue,
but two ears, that we may hear

from others twice as much
as we speak.

True friends are like diamonds,
precious and rare.

A friend is someone
who knows the song in your heart,

and can sing it back to you
when you have forgotten the words.

A friend is one who believes in you
when you have ceased to believe

in yourself.

It takes a long time
to grow an old friend.

Thanks for linking me! I like thoughts in this post (especially the one about having two ears and one tongue, which is something I still need to work!)

Great poem. Here's another that I like...
"Across the years I will walk with you,
in deep green forests, on shores of sand...
and when our time on earth is through,
in heaven, too, you will have my hand."
