A Friend?

A friend is not a book
one takes off the shelf
enjoys for a short while
and returns it
to a seldom seen shelf.

A friend is a delicate flower
who needs your care and attention.
In return, the flower gives
you beauty, fragrance
balance in a world often hard.

We must cultivate our friendships
honor and value them
for true friends are precious and few.
If you want someone for a friend,
what kind of friend are you?
