Example Answer

Some people have lots of friends,
But I prefer just a few.
I am able to spend more time with each of them,
We always have things to do.

My friends are very important to me,
And I think I am to them.
My friends are loyal and dependable,
I hope we are never split up.

When I have a problem,
I ask my friends for help.
Sometimes their advice works,
But even when it doesn’t,
I know I’m lucky to have friends who listen.
