A Friend

By Stephen Wayne Modawell

Where do they come from
Ones who just appear in life
Some finer than rum
Others closer than man an'wife

They may not be old
without them, what was before
Their warmth, on days' cold
Their presence we seek but more
 
How we want many
Yet we find so very few
treasured like a new penny
Their value great, one will do

When found, never let go
Too many years may pass, you see
Before God allows to flow
The gift of a friend like thee.
