POEM OF THE DAY -" A FRIEND FOR LIFE " BY JULIE HEBERT

A friend for life,
Is someone who,
Gives all they can,
And is true to you.

A friend for life,
Is someone with,
A brain for knowledge,
And knows every myth.

A friend for life,
Is someone who likes,
All the same things,
Like me and my yikes.

A friend for life,
Is someone who,
Will always be there,
For me and you
