A Friend For Life
Poet: , 2012

A friend for life, is someone who,
Gives all they can, and is true to you.
A friend for life, is someone with,
A brain for knowledge, and knows every myth.

A friend for life, is someone who likes,
All the same things, like me and my yikes.
A friend for life, is someone who,
Will always be there, for me and you.



A Friendship So Dear
Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012

To me so dear, is you my friend.
I hope to me, our friendship won't end.

As you are mine, and I am yours.
Our friendship has opened, many doors.

Let's never fight, and always laugh,
Well keep this friendship, under glass.

For if it breaks, then we'll know.
A friendship like ours, can take more than a throw.



Best Friends Poem
By Roy Croft

I love you not only for what you are,
but for what I am when I am with you.
I love you not only for what you have made of yourself,
but for what you are making of me.

I love you because you have done more than any creed
could have done to make me good, and more than any
fate could have done to make me happy.
You have done it without a touch, without a word, without a sign.

You have done it by being yourself.
Perhaps that is what being a friend means, after all.



A Friend is a Person
By Dorothy C. Retsloff
A Friend is a Person -
Who will help you in the hour of sickness;
Who will lend you a dollar without deducting the interest;
Who will help you up hill when you are sliding down;
Who will defend you in the hour when others speak evil of you;
Who will believe in your innocence until you admit your guilt;
Who will say behind your back what he says to your face;
Who will shake hands with you wherever he meets you, even though you wear patches; and
Who will do all these things just because he likes you!



Dear Lord
Poet: Martha Shell Nicholson

Dear Lord, my friends have been to me
Interpreters of love divine,
And in their kindness I have seen
Thine everlasting mercy shine!

And so I Pray on this Thy day,
That Thou wilt search trough gifts of Thine,
And choose Thy rarest, fairest ones,
To shower upon these friends of mine!



Friendship Is
Poet: Anna Holden King

Friendship is like a garden,
Of flowers fine and rare,
It cannot reach perfection,
Except through loving care,
Then, new and lovely blossoms
With each new day appear,
For friendship, like a garden
Grows in beauty year by year


Inspirational Quotes for Reflection:
"False friendship, like ivy, decays and ruins the wall it embraces; but true friendship gives new life and animation to the object it supports." Burton

"Friendship is, strictly speaking, reciprocal benevolence, which inclines each party to be solicitous for the welfare of the other as for his own. This equality of affection is created and preserved by a similarity of disposition and manners." Plato

"Friendship, in its truest sense, is next to love the most abused of words. One may call many "friend" and be still ignorant of that sentiment, cooler than passion, warmer than respect, more just and generous than either, which recognizes a kindres spirit in another, and claiming its right, keeps it sacred by the wise reserve that is to friendship what the purple bloom is the grape, a charm which once destroyed can never be restored." J. Alcott

"A friend hath the skill and observation of the best physician; the diligence and vigilance of the best nurse; and the tenderness and patience of the best mother." Clarendon
