The essence of a friend is hard to pin
To a single essential thing. But I
Think I have found a certain noun wherein
I may deposit the meaning. Now try
To make clear to me the meaning of day
By which you see things in a certain light;
How is this different than supposed night
Where you see things in silver moonlit ray?
A friend may be seen in both of these sheen's
Because of the one who takes residence
Within the heart; a brother may you glean
When you see his works among the peasants.
For essentially a friend, one who gives,
Is one who, for you, never stops, but lives.
