Friendship Poems Page 4
When we were little,
We were easily tickled,
And running around.
We’d make silly bets,
And promises to be kept,
And always swear,
To never back down.
Now that we’re grown up,
And drink coffee from a cup.
Things have changed,
Quite a bit.
But we always kept that promise,
to always stay friends til the end,
And that’s why,
you’ll always be my friend.
Poet: Edgar A Guest
Ain’t it fine when things are going
Topsy-turvy and askew
To discover someone showing
Good old-fashioned faith in you?
Ain’t it good when life seems dreary
And your hopes about to end,
Just to feel the handclasp cheery
Of a fine old loyal friend?
Gosh! one fellow to another
Means a lot from day to day,
Seems we’re living for each other
In a friendly sort of way.
When a smile or cheerful greetin’
Means so much to fellows sore,
Seems we ought to keep repeatin’
Smiles an’ praises more an’ more.
Days With You
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012
A day with you,
Was always so cool.
I loved to just,
We never had to,
Plan anything to do.
We could just sit,
Or walk around town.
We’d talk and laugh,
About things we’d heard.
Or maybe about,
The boy next door.
No matter the topic,
We’d always find logic.
And that’s why,
Our friendship will never bore.
Words of Friendship

Friends – always there no matter what the situation. There to share in the joy or to share in the sorrow. They are always willing to lend a hand no matter what needs to be done. A trusted person in my life!
Rapport – we have a relationship where there is harmony between two people over common issues. I can talk to them about anything. While we may not always agree, we can always discuss.
Esteem – this person who I call my friend always builds up my self esteem. They never put me down, they are encouraging and supportive. They build confidence!
Initmate – no matter what the situation, no matter what is going on in my life, I can talk with them. They show empathy and compassion allowing me to express myself without worrying about what they will think.
Neighbor – while they may not live beside me, they are neighborly in that they are kind, considerate, and are good company.
Dependable – people come and go in our lives. But my friend is one I know I can depend on. Always demonstrating reliability to be there when needed. And, they know the same applies to them if they need help.
Solidarity – we have common interests. Our views are in agreement and when they are not we can discuss it and sometimes agree to disagree.
Help – always will to help each other. If I call they will help – no matter what the situation or the job is.
Interested – care about what is going on in each others lives.
Pal – my pal, fun to be with, to share laughter and happiness. What a difference this friend of mine makes in my life.
