24 What Is a Friend?
Most people think that a friend in need is a friend indeed.
A good friend is someone who is always there to lend a helping hand.
He will never let you down or betray you.
In times of trouble you can always count on him.
As far as I am concerned, a true friend is simply a person who cares.
He is a person who will patiently listen to my problems or lend me a shoulder to cry on.
I hate to think of friends as only people who can be helpful.
For me, the ones who really care are the ones that really matter.
