Friends


Friends are:

there through thick and thin
always willing to let you in...
listen when you need to talk
beside you when you must walk..

They are there when the world is cruel
they let you know you are no ones fool...
They are there to make it feel alright
they are there for you both day and night

They are precious and oh so rare
and let you know how much they care
When you find a friend that has your back
they will support you through any attack

Friends are worth their weight in gold
real friends are neither bought or sold
they wish you the best and help to be
the best treasure in life you'll ever see...

    Not our parents, nor our siblings, neighbors, teachers, co-workers, are ours for the choosing...ahhh but friends, they are what we hand pick to enrich our lives. Beautiful gifts we give ourselves, that time should not tarnish, if polished with a loving touch. Exquisite write.....PEACE (Report) Reply

    A beautiful poem Dee. The value of true friendship has no price tag or
    label on it. A friend in need is a friend indeed. One good friend is better than
    a hundred acquaintances. Enjoyed. (Report) Reply

    True friends are rare indeed, and when we find one they should be valued more than gold. Very good write Dee. (Report) Reply

    Wonderful words Dee expressed from your heart. So true yet true friends that give there all are rare. There are times when friends are there because you have been the one giving when you stop they are no longer there. I will add these to my favourites. Cheers (Report) Reply

    Friends are worth their weight in gold
    real friends are neither bought or sold
    they wish you the best and help to be
    the best treasure in life you'll ever see...


    Can anyone describe friends in a better way? No doubt good friends are one's greatest treasure! But all those who show themselves to be friends, needn't be! There are 'friends' who stab us from the back! Enjoyed this beautifully rhyming poem, Dee! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
