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.

"You Got A Friend" by James Taylor


I am thankful
to have a friend like you,
you are there for me
sometimes without me
even knowing.

You let me be myself,
never uttering a word
about the way I live my life,
you are there to listen
if I need to talk.

It is nice
to know you are
in my corner
willing to help
if I ever need you.

A friend like you
is rare
for someone to find,
I am fortunate
to have met you
on this journey
of my life.

Rare Friend

Very sweet words. I have a friend or two like this. I'm often reminded to be thankful for them precisely because I realize how rare it is to find such a friend.
