Poem: I Call You Friend

I Call You Friend
By: Joi Maree Flowers

They that know I smile
To sometimes hide my tears;
Who take my hand to hold
And tell me to not fear…

They that love me
Despite my flaws;
Who stand not over me and laugh
But pick me up when I fall…

They that become my strength
When I am weak;

Who in my place will rise
And become my feet...

They that speak truth into my ears
Rather than the fabricated reality I would rather hear;
Who I trust with all I have
And in my heart hold dear…

I call them brother
I call them sister
I call them true
I call them friend.
