A Friend For Life
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.

A best friend is like a four leaf clover, hard to find, lucky to have.

A very famous poem!
Best Friend
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 best friend is someone who's there for you, no matter what.

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,

Thank You, My Friend

A Friendship So Dear
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012

To me so dear is you my friend.
I hope and pray our friendship never ends.

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

Let’s never fight, and always laugh,
We’ll 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!

A good friend knows all your best stories, but a best friend has lived them with 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!

We have been friends together,
In sunshine and in shade

We Have Been Friends Together
Poet: Caroline Elizabeth Sarah Norton

We have been friends together,
In sunshine and in shade;
Since first beneath the chestnut-trees
In infancy we played.
But coldness dwells within thy heart,
A cloud is on thy brow;
We have been friends together –
Shall a light word part us now?

We have been gay together;
We have laugh�d at little jests;
For the fount of hope was gushing
Warm and joyous in our breasts.
But laughter now hath fled thy lip,
And sullen glooms thy brow;
We have been gay together –
Shall a light word part us now?

We have been sad together,
We have wept, with bitter tears,
O’er the grass-grown graves, where slumber’d
The hopes of early years.
The voices which are silent there
Would bid thee clear thy brow;
We have been sad together –
Oh! what shall part us now?

Life is made glorious by the best of friends.

To an Old Friend
Poet: Edgar A. Guest

When we have lived our little lives and wandered all their byways through,
When we�ve seen all that we shall see and finished all that we must do,
When we shall take one backward look off yonder where our journey ends,
I pray that you shall be as glad as I shall be that we were friends.

Time was we started out to find the treasures and the joys of life;
We sought them in the land of gold through many days of bitter strife.
When we were young we yearned for fame; in search of joy we went afar,
Only to learn how very cold and distant all the strangers are.

When we have met all we shall meet and know what destiny has planned,
I shall rejoice in that last hour that I have known your friendly hand;
I shall go singing down the way off yonder as my sun descends
As one who’s had a happy life, made glorious by the best of friends.
