WHAT FRIENDS ARE THERE FOR !! by LINNER AND POKEY POPS !!

ME AND POKEY WROTE US A COUNTRY SONG ABOUT FRIENDS !! HOPE YOU LIKE IT !!


WHAT FRIENDS ARE THERE FOR

When you have a secret...friends are there
Even if you can’t keep it...friends are there
Giving smiles when there are none
Holding onto everyone
I know you are to me
What friends are there for

When it seems the world has turned away,
And crying is the menu for the day
When it seems... like no one cares,
Your true friend is always there.
A friend will always see you through,
No matter what they say

It seems to take a lot of work for some
To be a really true friend all the time
But when your soul is under the gun
You’ll be glad your homework’s done
And having a true friend is just sublime

They'll see you through the hardest times you know
When you’re done crying, laugh with you the rest
And what life throws your way,
A true friend never walks away.
A real friend never leaves you,
They'll always pass that test.

I Thank my God for giving me friendships true,
He knew I'd need a real good friend like you,
For love and laughter in my life,
To share life's happiness and strife.
God only sends the very best,
And He sent a friend who's true.
 
Such a balm has come unto my soul,
I know that God is in complete control.
His blessed love is in you, friend,
I know you'll be there to the end.
Forever there
and that is you, my friend !

Oh, forever there and that is you, my friend!
~~~

Hi Helen, and thank you !! This song /poem was written by both me and Denise....AKA POKEY POPS !! ... and we had a blast writing it, too !! It is very true that no matter what happens, true friendship is always what comes out on top !! I think Pokey has been having trouble getting into Hugs for a while, so until she can come in here, I would love to thank you for her, also !!

Love, Linner and Pokey !! :D :D :lol: :lol: :wink: :wink:

I was here once Linda ~ for months! Crying each single night and day.LOL..... Became nobody, nobody at all...... If it's not for the friends God sent me. I thought I couldn't survive.......

When it seems the world has turned away,
And crying is the menu for the day
When it seems... like no one cares,
Your true friend is always there.
A friend will always see you through,
No matter what they say

That's why I say amen to every line of this wonderful poem. I'm glad you wrote it and post it here.... This poem speaks the truth, the real truth that I can relate to the fullness of its meaning.

On second reading, I think this will make a great e-card! I love you..........

Well, look at you two little side-saddle cuties!........This is just the sweetest poem/song about friendship and there is nothing better than having friends. You two did a great job on this and Linner, as usual, you did a wonderful job of a sangin' this here ditty!

It has a great message, has a catchy tune and could not have been written better by anyone anywhere. Great pairing of the talents of two special friends. I really love it.
