True Friendship

Poet: W. J. Slater

Lovingly, sorrowing, oft do we sigh,
When the shadows of life bring tears to the eye,
For one whose friendship, like Moses of old,
Was given in love, not bought with gold.

Singing and dying, without any care,
Friendship is like a bird in the air,
It flutters and flies, in summer it comes,
In winter is gone, leaves desolate homes.

Like the flower that blooms in early spring,
It fades away and leaves a sting
In the heart of one, who just then
Needs Friendship's hand, to help him win.

Like the shooting star at early morn,
As it flies through space, and is lost in gloom,
Friendship is offered where none need its hand,
Flies off at a tangent when its in demand.

Like the sun in the heavens its dazzling light
Is gone when the storm is at its height,
Friendship is found in days that are bright
But pales when clouded with want and blight.

Like the moon in its path through a starry sky,
It sinks away as morning draws nigh,
Friendship is found where plenty reigns
But lost when crossing poverty's plains.

But while at times the sun is dim,
The moon it pales, the stars not seen,
God willed it so, and He commands
That Friendship shall extend its hands.

True Friend
Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012

Your friendship means so much,
And this I must explain.
You helped me through tough times,
And I hope I've done the same.

You are 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 thing is for sure, my friend,
I'll always stay true to you.
