Poems about friend - A Friend

A Friend - Poem by GAYLE ANNE GOFF

Usually for you to call a person
a friend, you have known them
personally for some time
face to face secret to secret.
But then there's the one you
also call your email- email
friends they have gotten to
know you almost as well
as your friend who might
live next door.


You have some-thing
special that you might
not have with your face-
face friend your love
of poetry

Instead of living next door
that new friend might
live half way around
the world or in the state
next door.
No phone charges, just
just a strokeof the key
a friend you'll be.
