Count Your Friends

It is not wise to count your friends
on a bright sunny day.
When the sky is blue
and smiles come so easily.

Instead wait for a storm,
when the clouds are dark
and the day grows cold.
Laughter is not heard
in your heavy heart.

Then when a friend comes
and stands beside you
and lifts your spirits to the sky
and laughter is in your heart,
he or she deserves the name...

Thank you, my Friend,
for braving the storms with me
and for making the sunny days
so much brighter.
