A simple friend hates it when you call after he has gone to bed. A real friend asks you why you took so long to call.
A simple friend seeks to talk with you about your problems. A real friend seeks to help you with your problems.
A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest. A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps himself.
Walking In The Rain
How would you like to walk in the rain,
On a dark and cloudy night,
When all that lies around you
Seem not to be in sight.
The business of the day dies away
In the night of dark mist
And unwelcome fright.
The singing of the birds,
The howling of the wind
The fragrance once captured entwines itself and spins,
All that can be heard, seen and sensed
Have journey through the night
And captured itself out of sight.
