Here Is To Friendship


Here is to friendship and his social calls
To the forgettable girlfriend introductions
And the noisy games with the boys
To the draining Sunday lunches
And the child infested swimming pools

Here is to friendship and her happy wishes
To the cheery voice on my sleepy phone
And the popping messages on my stern laptop
To the happy card on my officious desk
And the fruity hamper on a day full of food

Here is to friendship and his invitations
To the multiple children parties
And the dreary cousin weddings
To the distant stag parties
And the bring your own fun barbecues

Here is to friendship and her doting children
To their relays in my yard
And the breaking of kitchen items
To their rowdy fights
And the mess around the house

Here is to friendship and his fun events
To the mosquito bites in the deltas
And the injuries in the theme parks
To the chilly winter nights in tents
And the unending days under camping trees

Here is to friendship and our deep understanding
To knowing when a surprise visit could make me happy
And when a cheery message is all I need
To sensing when an outing could do me good
And when toddler noise would do the trick instead
