Day 38 – “What Makes a Friend?”

Standard

“What Makes a Friend?” by Jaymie Gerard

 

 

 

 

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s bold?

Who’s sparkly as diamonds

And shiny as gold?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s brave?

Who could fight off a dragon

Deep in a cave?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s smart?

Who’s a whiz in mathematics

And science and art?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone you’d trust?

Who would bury your secrets

Under the dust?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s strong?

Who could carry a tree for you

Fifteen feet long?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s fast?

Who’d stay behind with you

So you won’t be last?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone bighearted?

Who’d give you the last bite

Of cake he had started?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who cares?

Who, if you were crying,

You know would be there?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s funny?

Who does silly things

Like dancing in honey?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s cool?

Who likes to dress funky

And makes her own rules?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s good?

Who does the right thing

Just like he should?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s happy?

Who’s skippy and bouncy

And flippy and flappy?

 

What makes a friend

Who’s forever and true?

It’s someone quite special –

Someone just like you!
