Poem: Least Expected Friends

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Least Expected Friends is a poem about finding your true friends. Many claim to be there for you, but when you need them they run the other way with excuses. Sometimes it is the least expected ones that are actually willing to be there for you. Embrace this friendship.

Least Expected Friends

Friends are the ones
who stand beside you,
lending a helping hand
when you least expect,
without wanting anything in return.

This is a time
when you learn
what true friendship means,
a time full of surprises,
understanding the ones who really count.

A moment to count your blessings,
a time to be thankful,
showing appreciation to those special few,
who reached out with open arms
during your time of need.


Do things for people not because of who they are or what they do in return but because of who you are.

— Harold S. Kushner
