Building a Friend

by silver laduke

Yesterday 1-18 I sent a note to someone who had sent on a dear friend.My friend of 28 yrs died May 2010. I told this person(who also wrote a beautiful poem)that I would post a poem I wrote in 2000 in honor of my dear friend.Thank GOD for dear friends.

If I were building a friend
Here's what I would do.
I'd hunt for the finest parts
And put them together with glue.

I'd need the normal things
Like a body,and legs,and arms.
A head,a face,and feet it's true,
But the best part is it's charm.

I'd get ears that listen
with a heart so true.
There would be love to share
When the soul is blue.

I'd get some sympathy and tears
When bad times are near.
I'd get some laughter and joy
For when good days are here.

But most of all,it's true.
Together we would stand.
For we would be joined
By GOD's loving hand.

Friends forever on.
We're steadfast and true.
There for each other,
Friends,always true blue.
