True Friends

Friends are gullible,
they're like gold.
Use them and they're gone,
treasure but they leave.

Friends are vunerable,
they're like bubbles.
Blow them and they drift off,
hold them but they pop.

True friends are reliable,
they're like coals.
warms you when you're cold,
steal not your fame.

True friends are strong,
they're like diamonds.
Precious to the soul,
lasting to the eye.
