TITLE: Dear Friend

This is a poem I wrote to a particular friend of mine who is not a christian and it is just about what friendship is and about sharing our faith with those whom we consider to be our friends.
Dear friend,
What do those six letters mean?
And...Is this who I am?
Or is just a mask all shown to you by me?

F... I guess for faithful,
For always being there,
And always being ready,
To show you that I care.

R... is for being real,
That is the honest you and me,
The truth of which, I guess,
not many will ever see.

I... which is the subject case of me,
this is what a friend requires,
effort, truth, and all of me.

E... is for endurance,
For never giving up,
Always trusting, always hoping,
I think that itís called love.

N... would have to be for no,
To have the courage to be truthful,
About where you should and should not go.

D... would stand for depend,
And we have nearly finished,
but before this word to you I send,
I must explain what is meant by this.

For our dependence is not on ourselves,
Nor is it in each other,
But we must trust in God alone,
For the strength to love another.

Friendship,
I think,
Is not so much,
About either you or me.

But it is about the Lord,
That he would show us how to love,
And in our centre be.

My friend,
Now I have found the problem,
For how can a friend I be,
When I have not yet shared this with you,
For it is who I am you see.

I call myself your friend,
But I do not feel that this is real,
For Christ is not our centre,
Nor have I told you how I feel.

This is my life,
This is who I am,
And yet I know not how to share with you,
What I believe the truth to be.

My friend,
I wish you to know,
How much I care for you,
And that I really do appreciate,
All the things you do.

I wish that I could tell you,
About this journey that Iím on.

Itís not always easy,
And sometimes it is hard.
But it is the only way,
To really live this life you see.

My friend,
Why is it so hard,
To show you who I am,
To share with you his love for you,
That we might journey hand in hand.

My friend,
I know not even what I fear,
I trust you and call myself your friend,
Yet I feel Iím not sincere.

And so my friend,
This word to you I send,
In hope that one day I can share with you,
Who I really am.
