Here is one of my favorite poems. It has a good message:
A friend is someone who listens,
A friend is someone who cares.
A friend is someone who understands,
A friend is someone who shares.
Itís nice to have a special friend
To tell all your secrets to.
Itís nice to know that someone you like
Is someone who really likes you.
A friend is someone you call on the phone
To talk about nothing at all.
A friend is someone who cheers you up
And makes you feel ten feet tall.
Everyone would like to have
A special friend, itís true.
But if you want a special friend,
You need to be one too!
Try writing your own poem about friends.
If you send it to me I may post it on my kids’ page.
