A Friend Like You...

A Friend Like You...

A FRIEND LIKE YOU...

There's lots of things
With which I'm blessed,
My problems have been few,
But of all, this one's the best:
To have a friend like you.

In times of trouble
Friends will say,
"Just ask, I'll help you through it."
But you don't wait for me to ask,
You just get up and do it!

And I can think
of nothing more
That I could wisely do,
Than know a friend,
And be a friend,
And have a friend like you.

HOW DO WE PICK OUR FRIENDS

"How do we go out and face the world?"

Is the same question as
"How do we pick our friends?"

Dearly, like gems.

Carefully, like flowers.

The moments we remember best
Stay with us like a daisy-chain;

Like a necklace made of flowers,
Worn with familiarity and love,
And close to the heart.

We arrange them until they become something beautiful
And walk out into the world holding hands.

THE KEEPER OF FRIENDSHIP

In a friendship
We're free to expose,
Parts of ourselves
Nobody else knows.

But the thing that sustains it
And sets it apart,
Is not something spoken
It's a bond of the heart.

True friends are rare
In a lifetime two or three,
I'm so glad it happened
Between you and me!
