I've had friends fair weather and friends so sad, but the best are found when times are bad.
Some will stick close and share your smile, but soon will leave when out of style.
There are those that know and use your name, which soon will show as just a game.
Many need steps to approach the top and will step on you and never stop.
A few are clever your trust to win, but will deceive you until the end.
A real friend is one that loves the best, when times are hard, and life does test.
When times are up or they are down, they're always there, they're always found.
You are that friend so close, so true, and if I could be another, it would be you.
