Friends Like You
By , 2008

Friends like you
Keep me from feeling blue
You accept me
And always let me be

I can count on you always
Doesn't matter the day
Our friendship has stood the test
It is sometimes hard to believe we are still the best

Our friendship once like new wine
But now with years gone by it has stood the test of time
I count my blessings everyday
You are the best I often say

You always care
You never dare
A friend indeed
You fill a need

Together we grow old
Our friendship is like gold
The years go by
But I will not sigh.

Thank you my friend so dear
For always being clear
Because friends like you
Are of so special too!


The Helping Hand
by Author Unknown


If when climbing up life's ladder
You can reach a hand below,
Just to help the other fellow,
Up another rung, or so

It will be that in the future,
When you're growing weary, too,
You'll be glad to find there's someone
Who will lend a hand to you


A very famous friendship poem written by Edgar A. Guest many years ago. The poetry has wisdom in its words about what it takes to be a friend.
Be A Friend
By Edgar A Guest

Be a friend. You don't need money:
Just a disposition sunny;
Just the wish to help another
Get along some way or other;
Just a kindly hand extended
Out to one who's unbefriended;

Just the will to give or lend,
This will make you someone's friend.

Be a friend. You don't need glory.
Friendship is a simple story.
Pass by trifling errors blindly,
Gaze on honest effort kindly,
Cheer the youth who's bravely trying,
Pity him who's sadly sighing;

Just a little labor spend
On the duties of a friend.

Be a friend. The pay is bigger
(Though not written by a figure)
Than is earned by people clever
In what's merely self-endeavor.
You'll have friends instead of neighbors
For the profits of your labors;

You'll be richer in the end
Than a prince, if you're a friend



The Miracle of Friendship
by Author Unknown

There is a Miracle called Friendship
that dwells within the heart
and you don't know how it happens
or when it even starts.

But the happiness it brings you always
gives a special lift and
you realize that Friendship
is God's most precious gift.



Old Friends

By William Butler Yeats

Though you are in your shining days,
Voices among the crowd
And new friends busy with your praise,
Be not unkind or proud,
But think about old friends the most:
Time's bitter flood will rise,
Your beauty perish and be lost
For all eyes but these eyes.


I Have a Friend
Submitted by John

Remember to always say what you mean.
If you love someone, tell them.
Don't be afraid to express yourself.

Reach out and tell someone
what they mean to you.
Because when you decide that it is
the right time it might be too late.

Seize the day. Never have regrets.
And most importantly,
stay close to your friends and family,
for they have helped make you
the person that you are today.
