Joe - A Poem
A man can have hundreds of friends but none will equal to Joe,
For he is a friend like no other,
In our generation people have forgotten the worth and warmth of loyalty,
To have a friend at the end of all things is more splendid than any jewel in existence.
Oh, to have a friend in the brightest of days and the roughest of storms!
I have had friends, who I treated as family,
But how quickly they disappeared when trouble entered,
Like the light flickered off when my day became black.
But never have I felt like that with Joe.
I must have done something right to earn the friendship of a man who embodies the noble qualities lacking in today’s world.
I am blessed to be his friend.
Oh, to have a friend like Joe!
What have I done right to deserve a friend like he?
The world can be cruel and unforgiving. Life can sometimes be insurmountable but to have a friend like he at your side can make it feel all the worthwhile.
And when the world beat me to my knees and I was left with nothing but my fears and tears, I had Joe and that was all I needed.
I wish to you all that you will have a friend like Joe.
