! From Kahlil Gibran On Friendship - Poem by Michael Shepherd

Your friend is one who answers to your needs:
the field you sow with love, and reap with thanks;
you seek him for your peace, to hear his heart;
and when he's silent - still his heart you hear:

because, with words or not, you share his joy;
in presence or in absence he is there;
and stronger love may in his absence show:
the beauty of a love that asks for naught.

So tell your friend of all that ebbs and flows,
your best and worst of what fate deals to you:
no thought too great nor light for open minds
who share their pleasures, and their laughter too.

For in the dew of sweet and passing thoughts
each morning's fresh, for close and constant hearts.

    At the risk of going on about it - what drew me to this passage in Gibran was that the world is full of love poems, love me poems, love you poems, it's-over poems, hate you now poems...yet how rare, a poem to friendship! And when written, it breathes love, especially married love and love shared... Shakespeare's 'constant heart'... (Report) Reply

    Yes, Michael, for some of us sympathy is growing so close to love out of the ditch of the great needs that we prefer to wait for the sun's shade.
    Your point is well taken but it was dull when I received it.
