Strangers To Best Friends
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012
What really can I say,
About the two of us.
One day were strangers,
The next we were blessed.
We've only been friends,
For a very short time.
But it's like we'd been friends,
In some other lifetime.
Right away we clicked,
And best friends we quickly became.
We had the same interests,
Our husbands were also the same.
How lucky could we be,
To have found each other?
I can tell you one thing,
I wouldn't want any other.

You're friendship means so much,
And this I must explain.
You helped me through tough times,
And I hope I've done the same.
You're there when I call,
No matter what the reason.
If I need you, you'd be right over,
No matter what the season.
A true friend indeed you are,
Someone I can always trust.
You listen to my whine's,
And always have time to discuss.
I hope you can say the same,
That I've been a good friend to you.
One things for sure, my friend,
I'll always stay true to you.
"Walking with a friend in the dark is better than
walking alone in the light."
"A friend is what the heart needs all the time."
Henry van Dyke
"Friendship is the wine of life."
"I always felt that the great high priviledge, relief, and comfort of friendship
was that one had to explain nothing."
"I think there is a thread that runs through each friendship and keeps it going
no words neccessary. Each knows what the other knows about him
through good times and bad."
"Friends are God's way of taking care of us."
"The reward of friendship is itself. The man who hopes for anything else
does not understand what true friendship is."
Saint Alfred of Rievaulx
"Old friends, like old wines, don't lose their flavor."
"Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flames by another human being. Each
of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light."
