Ride or Die Kind of Friend

I've known your name for many years.
Who knew your story would bring me to tears.
Tears of anger, sadness, joy, and love.
Were you sent to me from the Lord above?
My entire life long I've felt so alone.
You come along and make me feel right at home.
What do I say? You've really reached the depths of my heart.
I pray that nothing will tear us apart.
You came to me to learn my story and my song.
Who knew that I'd finally feel that I belong?
Thank you for being my inspiration and friend.
I'm ride or die till the very end.

    Excellent poem about friendship ! A true friend is one that see your mistakes but still likes you ! Warts, blemishes and bumps people see but a friend looks inside of you for the real you !
