Friendship


Friendship is a flower
that blooms through
all four seasons
A river that flows
through valleys low
A spark of light
that shines through the night

A blanket you wear
in the chill of the night
A shield and spear
you use during a fight
An antique
with no prize tag on it

Friends are not made
but drawn by fate
Treat them like a painting
put them in the best light possible
Friends are not for influence
but for reliance
I got your back
you got my back
Thats their motto

Trust is a pillar
they lean against
Love is the core
of their existance
And respect is the fruit
of their love and trust

Dont walk in front of me
I may not follow
Dont walk behind me
I may not lead
Walk beside me
and be my friend

    Wow! This is the best poem I have ever read about friendship and it has kept me on the path of valuing my friendhsip. And what I like about it is that it has a thourough meaning but yet simply conyeved. I can't help it but to stress the lines where you say: Friends are not for influence ___ but for reliance. Indeed that is the truth. Thank you! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
