A Real Friend

A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest.  A real friend
opens your refrigerator and helps himself.

A simple friend has never seen you cry.  A real friend has
shoulders soggy from your tears.

A simple friend doesn’t know your parents’ first names.  A real
friend has their phone numbers in their address book.

A simple friend brings a bottle of wine to your party.  A real
friend comes early to help you cook and stays late to help you
clean.

A simple friend hates it when you call after they have 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 wonders about your romantic history. A real friend
could blackmail you with it.

A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have an
argument. A real friend calls you after you had a fight.

A simple friend expects you to always be there for them.  A real
friend expects to always be there for you!
