A TRUE FRIEND
No one in my life has loved me
As much as You.
No one in my life has given me
With nothing in return .
You have been a mother,
More than my mother. . .
A father more, than my father. . .
Times have been. . when they hurt me
But, I have never been hurt by You.
Times have been when my loved ones
Took offense from me,
When I did not fulfill their wishes. .
Even my children. . .
But You, not even once,
Turned Your back on me. .
My friends, as I thought they were. . . all untrue. . .
Human relations. . .
Based on interests and not lasting. .
Whereas, You, my true friend. .
With everlasting friendship.
