A Friend For Life
Poet: Julie Hebert, ©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.
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.
No Other Place I Would Be
Poet: Jim Thistle
Inspired by, Miss Judie Mitchell, a friend to the end…
I’ve a message to send, I'll convey at the end,
In hopes, the intended is listening,
To a gift I've received, and have come to believe,
Is the piece in my life that was missing.
There's a place in my heart, that I've set apart,
It's a place, where no other shall be,
It belongs to a friend, a friend to the end,
And to which, only they hold the key.
I dreamed, someone would come, not knowing where from,
Or to whom, that someone might be,
With my head in my hands, I could not understand,
All the things, that were burdened on me.
Seeing no way to win, and about to give in,
It was plain, that the world didn't care,
When I thought I was done, with nowhere to run,
I looked up, to find you standing there.
I knew nothing of love, till, the one I speak of,
So graciously, held out their hand,
And has shown me the way, to get through each day,
Who has faith, in the man I now am.
There is no room for doubt, how things would have turned out,
If you hadn't been watching my back,
Always there with a hug, or a much needed shove,
When I'm hurting, or falling off track.
There's no possible way, I could ever repay,
How I wish, there were more I could do,
But, I thank you my friend, my friend to the end,
And, I'm making this promise to you.
Wherever you are, be it near, be it far,
The first thing, you’re going to see,
If your world should grow colder, look over your shoulder,
There is, NO OTHER PLACE I WOULD BE…
A Friendship So Dear
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012
To me so dear, is you my friend.
I hope to me, our 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.
A Friend is a Person
Poet: 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!
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!
