You Have A Friend in Me

When the world turns its back on you

When friends do nothing but make you blue

When people around you doesn't seem to care

When the anger inside you feels like a flare...

I am always be here...

To take your pains away

To soothe even your darkest days

To tell you things are going to be fine

To sing you a song (even if i am not that good in singing)

whatever the time,

You feel like a stranger in your own home

You feel like you are all alone,

You think life is so unfair,

That you're just playing a stupid dare...

I am always be here..

To bring you out the best in you

To make you feel that many people care..

To lessen the burden and break it into two

So the other I can carry lightly with you,

No matter the distance

No matter the time

No matter how heavy the burden

No matter how deep or how light the problem

Even if things don't turn out fine.

I am always be her..

I don't care if you remember me last

I just want you to bear in mind

You have a friend

You have me.

I am always be here..

I may not be perfect, I may not be wise,

I may not have all the money in the world,

I may not make you laugh...

But I know I have the heart of someone who greatly cares

Once again, I want you to know that...

I am always be here for you...

Questions & Answers

Question: How does hate and jealousy between women affect us as women?

Answer: Sometimes, it affects us to develop inferiority complexes with other women. However, this depends on the person. If she will let herself be affected on the other party or not. Hate and jealousy are unproductive values that we must learn to evade as much as possible because it greatly affects our psychological health.

As I read the poem, i realize that having one true friend is a gift. Even though they don't see each other for a very long time yet the connection is still there. As I said even you don't see each other they still their the bond. I'm proud of this kind of friendship i had in my life.

Windelyn Lopez on September 10, 2019:

This poem tells us that despite of all the people who had left us there's that one guy who will always be there of us no matter what.

I do believe in the quote that no man is an Island so we need to build strong and genuine friendship through others.

May I ask you isn't it more happy and contenting if you have a companion...

So If you have one cherish them for the rest of yourlife... ❤️

Friends are something that you should treasure the most. They became the part of who you are today and to the future. By reading this poem the way I value my friends became even deeper than before.

Paulo John Dagampat on September 10, 2019:

The moment I've finished reading this poem reminds me of a very special friend of mine. A friend that is always on my side no matter the situation is. A person that would cheer you up in your darkness hours. A friend that brings you hope and give importance of what living is. A friend that you would treasure the most.

Angelica Joveres on September 10, 2019:

How I wish a have a friend like you. I miss the times when someone is there for me, hearing my rants about non sense, whose there to listen to my every dramas in life, laughing all day, my comforter when I’m sad and my shoulder to lean on when I’m so tired about so much things. I badly wanted to experience that right now because I’ve been longing to have a friend like you. I keep on reminiscing the memories I had when the day that they didn’t turn their backs on me. I miss them as I also miss myself.

Antonio, Rejoice D. on September 10, 2019:

This poem is about a Friend who is always there to support you, a crying shoulder when you feel the world is against you. For me, a real friend is like treasure, hard to find but a true one. They are the one who accept our flaws (except from our family) and correct us from our wrong doings. Sometimes we can't see their worth, but when they're gone, we realize how much treasure we loss. Let us always appreaciate our friends sacrifices for it's another way of saying thank you.

Marry Jean Gonzales on September 10, 2019:

This poem reminds me of my friends, a friends that always be by your side and a friend that leaves you the moment you made a wrong decisions in your life' A true friend that god given to us, they do not have to be in your life but they choose to be the part of your life and for that we should be really thankful. To those friends of mine trying to keep their promises no matter what 'I really appreciate them.

Milva M. Valdez on September 10, 2019:

In times of your problems always think that you can surpass that. When youre so down and you dont want to stand and fight back anymore always think that its not the end of your life already just fight and fight back no matter what it takes and no matter what happen. Because the first person that always there for you everytime, everywhere and anywhere is you, yourself. She or he is the one who will there for you, who will fight for you, who will stand and fight back if you are already tired. She or he will the one who will remind you that you are more than important and you are not useless as what you think to yourself or as what others think to you

Jessa Mae Ancheta on September 10, 2019:

Even I did not read this poem, I was so very lucky to have true friend. A friend that I never expect it would be come. I didn't wish to have true friend but I realized she can be one of my guidance to pursue my dreams. A true friend making me realized to explore a new thing(good) and I can be happy. I am not saying we have the perfect relationship but we have the good connection or good understanding to each other. A true friend will help you not everything but she is always on your side no matter what happened.

But after I read this poem making me more give to realized to give more an importance and love more that true friend or should I say be one of my treasure.

Kristel B. Ramirez on September 10, 2019:

Sometimes we tend to feel like our presence is unwanted. And at times like this, some remain unmoved while some leave. This poem is a reminder to the people who feel like they are irrelevant that they are never alone. There's always someone willing to keep them company, even in the worst situations. Someone who genuinely cares for them and who would help them grow. Because no matter what a person is like, there is always someone who'll make efforts for him/her. And with this poem, I hope they start to get recognized and not overlooked.

Castro, Crista Maureen C. on September 10, 2019:

Don't let yourself down. If you have anger to your heart it means you have no freedom and you also feel uncomfortable. Always think positive. Even though you feel lonely there's someone who will help you to wipe your sadness number one is God, he's the one who will help you in your problems. But Don't think about your problems, let your problems problem you. Don't listen on what people say, you completely know yourself, you know who you are. If you have a darkest past, then accept it. Remember day is not a play list to reverse. Flow to it! love what God gives you. Don't make yourself be ruined by people who don't want you, pray for them, and God is always there for you to guide you.

Dezza Erica S. Pasahol on September 10, 2019:

In this poem I realize that even if you feel alone there's a person who are here in you side. The one who can understand you no matter what. Even if you have a problem there's a person who can help you to solve the problem with you. Even if they say that you can't do it there's a person who can cheer you up to make things possible.

Twinkle Rafael on September 10, 2019:

A letter of a true friend. This poem is an example of a friendship, even though they don't see each other for a very long time yet the connection is still there. In times of trial they got each others back, they dont left each others side in fact the support of help one another.

I'm happy and proud at the same time because I have this kind of friend. As I said ,we may not see each other for a long time we still find time to chit chat and share our thoughts to each other.

Galleta, Janine C. on September 10, 2019:

As I read the poem, it made me realize that one true friend do really exists.

Though you are loaded with flaws and scars, and even your distance is far away, and the time doesn't match as yours, a true friend's still one call away. No matter how long and rough the road, he/she still wants to join the adventure we take, motivating us to continue driving in life. He's always there to lend his hand, to take us to light and help us to bring out the best in us.

Actually, I've found Jesus in this poem. All the qualties of a friend contained by him. Though we can't see him, we can still feel him, talk to him, and cry to him. He's a living proof that a real friend is just beside us, holding our hands throughout our journeys in life, though it has curves and cracks.

Indeed, a true friend is a real friend.

Jessica Oreal on September 10, 2019:

They may not have experience with the exact thing you’re going through but they know what it means to hurt, they can feel it. They may turn their back on you but one day you’ll meet someone who appreciates you for who you are.

Padilla, donna on September 09, 2019:

Every pain, every struggles, every sorrow. We should always remember that there's someone who will stand with you no matter what your situation is. Frantically, not all the people around you are comfortable to be with you but a true friend is way different from that person and actually finding someone who truly understands you is like a coin you rarely see in the road.

Stephanie E. Radam on September 09, 2019:

Reading this poem makes me feel that I am not alone. This poem is very suitable for those who feel like they are alone. It consoles the person who reads this.Even me myself feels alone sometimes too even if I have a friend.That's because all our friends are not always there for us.They have their own life too that they need to deal with.That's why there is always a time where in we need someone to talk to when we are sad or when we are encountering such problems but no one is available.In times like we are almost giving up,our friends motivates us the most to keep on going.That's why with this poem, we can feel the comfort that we need for a moment.

Justin Mary B. Bulatao on September 09, 2019:

It says that though our life is full of struggles and difficulties, there's someone who is willing to be there for us. There's someone we can lean on. So we shouldn't stress ourselves and think more positivity in life. Aside of that, we should also give our trusts in the Heavenly Father. Make Him as our strength to survive the challenges of life.

Althea Orodio on September 09, 2019:

Even if we're left all alone we always have someone to return to and for me that is our self. No matter what happens, I believe that at the end of the day all we have, all we own is our self.

We're not alone in this journey, even if everyone turns their back on us, because we got our own back. That's how important accepting and appreciating ourselves is.

The poem can also refer to our Almighty Father, after all, He is ever-loving and omniscient that we can turn to him all the time and listen to us.

Palculan, Einzelle Julie L. on September 09, 2019:

After I have read this, I think I really believe the quotation no one is an island .... i realized that Having a friend whom you can lean on is one of the best treasures in the world. When you have a friend it seems like you found a family outside your home. They may judge you but rest assure they will be there for you whenever you need them.

Mariecon Ducusin on September 09, 2019:

While reading the poem, someone came to my mind. It made me smile I feel like that someone is being described. The poem reminds us that even in the darkest points of our lives, there's always someone whose hands will always be ready to embrace us, no matter the flaws and imperfections we have.

Wilgen Callanta on September 09, 2019:

I interpreted the poem as a heartbreaking situation portraying someone selfless and kind. It depicts someone who is openhanded, much like the unsung heroes of the society who are compassionate enough to fix and help others even when they are the ones broken themselves. We perceive these people as strong and capable to the point where we forget to bother asking them if they are fine and if they need a friend as well.

Sandaga, Abegail on September 09, 2019:

When everything in your life is messed up and that you can't be able to handle it anymore, you should always remember that you are not alone in carrying all your burdens in life. We should always remember that there is always someone out there whom you can share your problems with. Someone who gives you strength and enlightens your mind. He may be a friend or a family of yours.

As I was reading this article, the first thing that comes into my mind is my faith, in God. Some of us forget Him once we get the things we desire to have and remember Him when we are in pain and difficulties. Even so, our God is still a forgiving God. He loves us all. Even we tend to forget Him, He will still listen, guide and help us. Albeit I remember Him last, He still puts me first. I know it because I felt it so many times. Whenever I had problems and I don't know how to deal with it, I will call for His help. I don't know how but I felt something and gives me a peace of mind. And then later, I will have the courage or the driving force to face those problems and then, viola! It's already done!

All in all, the article says that no matter how bad life slaps you, you should always put in your mind that someone will help you to get through it.

Nonito Jake Adalid Jr. on September 09, 2019:

We have our own struggles in life but we dont need to bare it all alone. You might think that there is no one that will listen to you or even care about you but the fact is there is always someone out there who cares about you, you might just dont recongnize that they do because they're unrecognizable but try to appreciate these little doings of them and you will realize that there is really someone that cares about you. You have your friend, your family, and yourself and these are worth appreciating for. You are not alone, and you will never be.

Quibin, Lucille on September 09, 2019:

In this world where bad things happen, with the judging eyes always watching your every move, we tend to isolate ourselves and think that we are all alone. Each one of us assume that we don't have anyone but ourselves, but in this poem, it made us believe that there could be someone out there that would make us think otherwise. This poem has ignited our hope that there is someone we can lean on, someone we can trust, someone that cares for us more than we can imagine.

Lyka Simon on September 09, 2019:

This poem proved that true friendship really exist. That their is a friend who cares for you without hesitation and a friend who you can lean on in times of problems. A friend who can give you hope and a friend who will love you unconditionally.

This poem reminds me that no matter what happen there's always a friend in your side that you can lean on. A friend that always putting you up and cheering you up and a friend that always there for you through ups and downs and a friend that can give you advice. This also reminds me a good friend that no matter what happen he/she will not leave you because friend is a blessing that we can treasure.

Soriano. Ruben Jr., C. on September 09, 2019:

The poem tells about don't be afraid of having no friends at all, whether from the outside home because someone else is always there for you to build up your frightened to stand without any bagged. Number of friends doesn't help you to see life's difficulties only stays beside is the one who thought being someone else is not just being there but a friend to you.

Neriza Yoro on September 09, 2019:

When the world turns their back on you, just remember that you will always have that good friend who will never leave you. And when you are down and feels like drowning in sadness and pain, you will always have a friend who's ready to listen and willing to help just to lessen what you are feeling and will go with you in overcoming your misery.

Trisha Mikaela Garcia on September 09, 2019:

This poem made me realize that our friend is very important. That no matter happens, there is someone who ready to listen and comfort us. They are the one who will lift and rise us up when the things are going down. They are someone we can always count on when time are tough. They even see us at worst. They are the one who respect and keeps all our secrets. It is very important to have somebody with whom we can share our thoughts freely. They give us total freedom to be who we really are. The relationship of true friends becomes stronger day by day with care and trust. True friends are worth more than all the treasures of the world. Lasting friendship is a blessing for everybody.

In this poem I realized that whatever your problem is there is always someone somewhere willing to listen to all your problems and will understand you and help you to go through your problems while lifting your spirits up

Noelle Solares on September 09, 2019:

This poem is for those who need a friend. This poem will them feel that there will always be that one person who is ready to listen and console you. Ready to understand and will not judge you. There will always be that person who is willing to be your shoulder to cry on even if he/she is the last person you remember. It won't matter to them because what's important for them is for you to release what you've been holding in so you can be okay and feel alright again.

Jasmine Brazan on September 09, 2019:

By reading and putting every words in my heart this poem makes me feel not alone. I can feel that whenever I fail there is always someone who won't turn their backs on me. Somehow, this reminds me of a good friend that will never leave me at all cost, even if I can't talk to her always, even we don't see each other everyday. It gives me sense of safety, not just physically, but most specially in my mental, emotional and social aspect.
