Poem: You Are a Rare Friend

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

You are a rare friend is a poem about having a friend who lets you be yourself. He doesn't say a word about the way you live life. He has your back, standing in your corner to help if you need him. It is like finding a diamond in the sky realizing you must have picked up a lucky coin. He is a rare friend to have on your journey in life.

"You Got A Friend" by James Taylor


You Are Rare

I am thankful
to have a friend like you,
who is there for me
even at times, without my knowledge.

Who lets me be myself,
not uttering a word
about the way I live my life,
who is there to listen
if I need to talk.

It is nice to know
you have my back
standing in my corner
willing to help out
if I ever need you.

A friend like you
is rare
like finding a diamond in the sky.

I must have picked up a lucky coin
to have met you
on this journey
of my life.

Rare Friend
