This poem developed in my college algebra class one day. A plea I made to my very best friend - for she will never know how much she touches my life. The only friend in my life, I have ever trusted.

This poem originally was published in Friendship Poems

A Plea For A Friend
From dawn to dusk
I think of thee,
As I feel your sweet spirit come over me.
A calming hand,
A warming heart,
You and I shall never part.

Follow me as I kneel to pray,
to thank you for my days of praise.

To you I owe,
my life I lend,
for in return I promise a friend.

    This beautiful poem reminds me of what I have to thank God for and how much I'm glad he created me to become a friend to all those who consider being there for me and those who he will always guide to the right place and how a friend is always going to be him.
